This is the lower part of the

Hengifoss waterfall


Egilsstadir town

is located on the banks of a huge

Lagarfljot lake

. The lake is 25 km long, and 2.5 km of width maximum. It's depth reaches of 112 meters. According to the legend, there's a creature unknown to science that  inhabits the lake. This creature is called Lagarfljot serpent. 
We checked in a hotel and went to the lake. But first, we came in a supermarket, where we saw such a cute yarn.
