By the third day of our trip, we were so exhausted, but we were running on pure adrenaline and excitement. We drove many miles and stopped at the black sand beaches of Vik. We also knew that we had to get to the Glacier Lagoon by 6pm. So we almost skipped Svartifoss. It was mainly because I was tired and didn't want to do the 45 minute hike to get to the waterfall. Of course Markus worked his magic and convinced me to soldier on. I'm really glad he did, because Svartifoss was definitely in my top three waterfalls in Iceland. After a while all waterfalls tend to look the same, but this waterfall was different. It was surrounded by basalt columns and it was absolutely stunning.
