Rauðauga (Red Eye) is an absolutely breathtaking natural phenomenon that will steal your heart and soul. It is one of the most magical places you will ever visit. A place where you can gaze into the depths of the Earth. You will feel fear here, and you won’t mind. Indescribable.

This is the source of the Rauðufossakvísl River, and it is truly a fascinating place.

You will find Rauðauga somewhere in the middle of Iceland’s central highlands, far in the inhospitable nothingness. First, reach the Rauðufossar waterfall, hike up along it, and then continue about 2.5 kilometers upstream, cross the stone bridge, and you are there, right at the source of the Rauðufossakvísl River. How easy!
