“Háifoss is one of Iceland’s tallest waterfalls and is recognized for both its height and volume. Meaning “high falls”, this waterfall plummets 122 meters into a gaping canyon alongside its sister waterfall, Granni, which means “the neighbor”.

It was an episcopal see, a school, a seat of learning and administration for more than 700 years and a place of pilgrimage in medieval times. ​Skálholt of our time is more than history. It is a place of culture, spirituality and music run by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland, ELCI, – and open for all. It is the site of a deputy bishop and a local parish pastor . Besides services every Sunday, there are morning and evening prayers on weekdays. In Skálholt there are frequent cultural, educational and artistic events and retreats.”
