Svartifoss (The Black Waterfall)

Svartifoss (The Black Waterfall)
Svartifoss (Black Falls) is a waterfall in Skaftafell National Park, and is one of the most popular sights in the park. It is surrounded by dark lava columns, which give rise to its name. The hexagonal columns were formed inside a lava flow which cooled extremely slowly, giving rise to crystallization. Svartifoss drops from the edge of a broad columnar basalt cliff which looks like the round wall of an amphitheatre. It has become the symbol of Skaftafell National Park.
