Glymur is Iceland’s second-tallest waterfall, and the tallest that is easily accessible by foot. Located in the fjord of Hvalfjörður, it stands at a height of 198 metres (650 feet). Glymur is fed by the river Botnsá, which has sources in Iceland’s glaciers and runs from a lake above. You can visit this beautiful spot while on a self drive tour of the island.
As part of Hvalfjörður in west Iceland, many other sites can be seen in conjunction with Glymur. It is close to the settlements of Akranes and Borgarnes, both of which are commerce centres of the region, perfect to refresh at. Both are also historically significant, having been settled for over a millennium.
