Message from Aron Tómas
Þjófafoss is a hidden gem in South Iceland that offers a stunning view of the Icelandic landscape. This turquoise waterfall, named after thieves who were punished by drowning in its pool, is not very tall but its width and power make it a picturesque spot. Located east of the Merkurhraun lava field, Þjófafoss is one of the three major waterfalls on the Þjórsá River. It's a bit off the beaten path, but definitely worth a visit if you're exploring the Golden Circle or the South Coast. Just be prepared for a bit of a drive to get there!
