“Another beautiful, very powerful waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

While traveling Southern Iceland we saw numerous waterfalls. All unique and intriguing. So much beauty all close to the road, so if walking is a challenge there is still so much to see.

“Truly awesome natural power”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

A 'must see', with the added advantage on a winter visit of parts being frozen.

However, do not be fooled by sunshine and the ambient 2°C temperature - the wind whips down from the North Pole at 30+MPH giving a windchill factor of -16° - Keep as little skin exposed as you can!!

Nonetheless, it's worth the trip
