Days of travel: 6 Gljúfrafoss or Gljúfrabúi ("the one who lives in the gorge") The falls tumble down from the Gljúfurá River over 60 meters. The river runs from Tröllagilsmýri (Troll Gorge Marsh) into the northern edge of a lava field which was formed in the volcanic eruptions in Eyjafjallajökull at the beginning of Holocene. There is a certain mystique over the waterfall because it falls into a deep chasm, while in front of it there is much palagonite rock that blocks the waterfall so that only the very top of it is visible from the outside. Even if the falls are partially obscured by its own canyon hikers can wade into the narrow gorge below the cliff, where the water plummets to a small pool. The boulder that blocks the waterfall is called Franskanef. Previously, people believed that it and the surrounding cliffs were the residences of huldufólk or "hidden people".
