The small canyon with the waterfall is just a few kilometres off the Ring Road on an unpaved road. The falls are not so spectacular as the big ones, but together with the canyon it makes for an great sight. You have excellent views of...More

A great stop sort of tucked away from the ring road while driving around Iceland. It is definitely pretty high up and a pretty big gorge. Be careful walking as it can be wet, but you still get some really nice views. It was a...More

Great view, not to many tourists at the same time! Watch out for edges though, steep. Walk along the entire falls and see different stages of a waterfall.

the Kolugljufu waterfall can be viewed at close proximity. the canyon nearby is interesting too.. good for drone pictures and this is one of the few places that allows drone flying.

We stopped here advised by TripAdvisor. It was a 15 minute drive on a gravel road to get here from highway 1. It was an impressive waterfall that we would have overlooked otherwise. We were the only tourists at the time, which made it a...More

This was by far the highlight of my day. Every corner I turned it was a new view or another waterfall!! I parked past the bridge and took the path all the way to the very bottom (tricky at parts). It was windy and cold...More
