“Best waterfall around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

What a sight to see. The spray from the falls was frozen on the sides of the falls and it make it look so cool. Take the short walk to the edge of the falls for an even better view and sound of all this water rushing. It was incredible! Great gift shop too.

“Breathtakingly beautiful, but very cold.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We loved the scale of the waterfall, it just went on and on. We walked to the end and we did get a little damp from the spray, but worth it just to see the power of the water.

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Stunning and on a par with Niagara though not quite as large. The icy weather caused the spray to form large icicles all over the gorge just adding to the spectacle.

“Beautiful scene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

It was cold and icy, but the multi-level waterfall was spectacular. Our guide gave us alot of info about the local area. It was one of the best tours that we took on our trip to Iceland

“a spectacular showcase of nature's power”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

The photos don't really do justice to the magnificent roar of water and the stunning, sweeping streams of water that race down the edges of the waterfall. See it at sunset if you can!
