A small cascade of waterfalls off of the Ring Road perfect to stop at to stretch your legs during a long road trip.

Glanni Waterfall is in the western region of Iceland right off the main Ring Road. It's the perfect place to get out and stretch your legs for a quick 15 minutes.

Starting at the parking area, walk towards the signs with hiking trail directions (to the right). From here you'll see a maintained gravel path heading to the right. Walk down this path for a couple hundred feet before turning left (you will see a viewing platform). From here you can retrace your steps back to the parking lot or explore the other little trails next to the river. 

Additionally, if you go during a salmon run or any other type of fish run up the river, there is a fish ladder and you can see the fish jumping from pool to pool to get around the waterfall!

Pretty and easy to get to but lacking in exploration

This is a really neat little waterfall that's a short walk from the road. It's quiet and has nice scenery, but that's about it. I still recommend checking it out as it won't take you long!
