Rainbow in the waterfall Glymur

Today I did a hiking tour to the waterfall Glymur. The hike starts about one hour drive away from Reykjavik. At the beginning of the walk you have to cross a river, a log is placed there to help you, but it was a bit shaky 😮 The waterfall is located at the end of a fjord and is 196m high. I walked up on one side, then crossed a river (the water was ice cold!! and it was up to the knees! but better than going back the same way ;-)) at the top and then I walked down on the other side. The walk offers great views to the waterfall and back to the ocean. Just before reaching the top the sky became blue and the sun was shining and there was a rainbow inside the waterfall! That was so beautiful! I would definitely recommend this hike when you like waterfalls 😉
