Þjófafoss and Búrfell volcano Iceland

If you are anywhere near the Golden Circle, South Iceland, or heading interior, this waterfall is well worth the detour!

Þjófafoss is a breathtaking waterfall on the Þjórsá river in the middle of the Merkurhraun lava field. Situated with mount Búrfell in the background, this is an incredibly picturesque place to visit!

Þjófafoss means “thieves falls” because, as the legend has it, thieves were taken here and drowned for their crimes.

Note that due to the dam upper on the river, there might be no water here (mostly in winter)
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.
