“Very dramatic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Stunning view and in good weather you can get very close to the falls. Great environmentalist story. Cafe reasonably priced - the Icelandic Lamb soup was delicious

“Spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

lovely waterfall to see, well maintained pathways and in the summer you can get really close. On our visit the lower path was closed due to snow & ice, but we still got a great view
