The waterfalls are spectacular an absolute must see in South Iceland, raw power and beauty. The visitor center was uninteresting and quite ok to give that a miss and head straight to the waterfalls

Make sure you are wearing rain gear here. This is a very nice stop on any tour of the "Golden circle".
