Ljósáfoss is a small and beautiful waterfall nestled deep in the eastern forests, which is not very common in Iceland. Near the waterfall, there is a bench with a table where you can have a snack.

You can find the Ljósáfoss waterfall about 25 kilometers southwest of the town of Egilsstaðir. There is a small parking lot by road no. 931 (GPS: 65.084944, -14.776639). From there, you will walk along a forest path straight uphill for about 800 meters until you reach the waterfall.
