Morsárfoss (Icelandic pronunciation: [ˈmɔr̥sˌaurˌfɔsː] ) is a waterfall in Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland.[1] Measurements showed that one of the several waterfalls in the area is at least 240 metres (790 ft) in total height, making it the tallest waterfall in Iceland.[2] Morsárfoss became visible in 2007 when Morsárjökull, an outlet glacier of Vatnajökull glacier, started melting.[3]
