Stunning waterfall
Jun 2021
Just amazing! This waterfall is not to be missed if driving toward Landmannalaugar. Its only a short detour and well worth the effort.

Wow, it is one of the most beautiful Waterfalls in Iceland.
We had drive 6 kilometers on a dirt road, it is worth the drive and the time.

Spectacular view, horrible off road
Sep 2020
This waterfall is majestic and a must see. It is quite difficult to reach it and you will be going on a dirt and rocky road, so 4x4 vehicle is highly recommended. If you are lucky for weather and it is sunny, it is a very spectacular view.

Isolated Waterfall
Jan 2019
This waterfall is not visited by many mainly because it is not covered as part of any tour.
The road is relatively(as most of the road even to less popular places Iceland road are amazing) bad especially in winters with potholes filled with ice, but it is definitely doable.
We were the only ones at the waterfall and when we were leaving we had an helicopter land probably tourists.
The drop is magnificent and flow into the huge crevasse is amazing.

A Required Stop !!
Oct 2019
I read an earlier review here which mentioned that Haifoss Waterfall was one of the highlights of his trip. This certainly applies to me as well. This was one amazing waterfall and stop. My only criticism is the long windy dirt road to reach the place was horrible and by the time we got there we were pretty worn out. Nonetheless I was completely blown away with the sheer awesome natural beauty of this place. Words simply cannot describe the overwhelming sense when you visit here. I could nave stayed here for another hour just to soak the beauty in but instead we stayed for about 30 to 45 minutes or so. There were hardly any people here mainly due to the remoteness of the place. And we got lucky with the weather as well...it wasn't too windy or cold. I will never forget Haifoss Waterfall !

One of the highlights of my visit to Iceland
Sep 2019
We walked to Haifoss! It was about a 12K hike but stunning at every step of the way and that was in the rain.
Iceland has just had one of its wettest years in recorded history so Haifoss was giving it all it had, the power and amount of water flowing over it was truly awesome, a word that is grossly over used but apt in this case.
I have told my wife (who wasn't with me) that if we ever go back to Iceland this is somewhere we must visit again.

In a country with lots of waterfalls, this one stands out!
Sep 2019
Haifoss is a bit of a drive to get to, as many reviewers have stated, a 4x4 vehicle is your best option, the day I visited, it would have been the only option, there was a lot of rain and deep, waterfilled holes in the gravel road were unavoidable - that being said, on a different day, it would have been possible to take a normal car there, albeit a slowwww and careful drive.

Anyway, when we visited, we were the only ones there, Haifoss is an amazing sight and a very powerful waterfall. I thought it more impressive than Seljandafoss or Skagafoss. When taking pictures, don't get too close to the edge because strong wind gusts can occur unexpectedly. This was a 2 1/2 hour drive for us and it was 100% completely worth it, if I had more time I would have come back again another day. This is a must see, in my opinion, even more so than the more popular (but less impressive) waterfalls along the southern coast.

Amazing waterfall
Sep 2019 • Couples
I just cannot express all my feelings about this waterfall. It is fantastic! However, we did not have 4x4 car so it was little bit difficult for us to drive the gravel road, which leads to the waterfall. Also beware - there is a very strong wind on the viewpoint area.

One of Iceland’s Tallest Waterfalls (400 feet)
Jul 2019
In a country full of waterfalls to say you’ve seen the 4th tallest is reason enough to stop here. If you are coming from highway 32 budget a solid 15-20 minutes to drive the rocky road. It’s mostly smooth and fairly easy for an SUV or 4 wheel drive but cars may want to take it a bit slower.

If you make it here you HAVE TO go check out Gjain down the road. You won’t regret it and will be thankful you did. I promise.

majestic waterfall
Jul 2019 • Couples
I believe this is one of the lesser viewed waterfalls because it's well off the beaten path. We slowly drove up road 332 to Haifoss and boy were we rewarded. When we got there, there were only two people. This waterfall and its surroundings left us in awe.
