There could not be bigger contrasts between farms without road connections, naked rock walls and fertile cultured landscapes, discoveries from the Stone Age and small power stations.
The highlight of this sightseeing is the view towards Langfoss waterfall. Langfoss has an impressive drop height of 612 metres; CNN Travel elected Langfoss as being one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.
