The next stop was Skaftafell National Park:
Skaftafell is a stunningly beautiful and verdant park located on the slopes of the mountain Kristínartindar, and includes the glacier Skaftafellsjökull (a part of the Vatnajökull ice cap) and the Morsárdalur valley.

Skaftafell is home to quite a few picturesque wateralls. Here is Hundafoss, a short hike from the trailhead:
