Iceland Gjain valley and waterfalls

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Gjain is one of the most beautiful places on Iceland. It looks as if fairies and elves live there. Various waterfalls, pools and lava rocks are located in this little valley that is also a scenery from Game of Thrones.

Photography Tips

Use a ultra-wideangle lens to capture as much as possible of the imposing landscape. To get the water soft, use a neutral density filter and a tripod.

Travel Information

This spot is not easy to find and I do recommend a 4x4 because the road to the parking space is pretty bumpy. You need to hike about 30 minutes to get to the spot where this photo was taken but it is definitively worth it.
