THE BÁRÐARDALUR VALLEY extends about 45 kilometers from north to south and is bisected by Skjálfandafljót (Trembling River), which originates in the Vatnajökull glacier and contains some of Iceland’s most beautiful waterfalls, such as Goðafoss, Aldeyjarfoss and Hrafnabjargafossar. The valley has been inhabited since the earliest settlement of Iceland. Ancient settlements are known to have existed deep in this wilderness along the Skjálfandafljót and to the north along Fljótsheiði heath, east of the valley, the remains of numerous nineteenth-century heathland settlements are to be found.
