Beautiful. If your approaching it from the east you’ll get a great view of the falls as you approach on the main road. Pull off for a great (and short) walk to the falls. The horseshoe falls are approachable and beautiful.

Breathtaking! We stopped there on the way from myvatn and it was easy to access. It was extremely slippery and had to be careful not to trip over while walking around but what to expect at this time of the year...

If you are heading from Akureyrin to Lake Myvatn you will see this magnificent waterfall . Stunningly beautiful in winter ice hanging from the centre of the falls surrounded by thundering water. Nice cafe & shop nearby.

It’s beautiful here, the waterfall is stunning and there are some great photo opportunities. There’s a cafe and gift shop and toilets too. I bet this is stunning in summer, there seem to be lots of opportunities for hikes.

The waterfall is in a beautiful horse-shoe shape which resembles some of the most popular waterfalls in the world, like the Niagara Falls. This is the most beautiful waterfall on Iceland to my point of view.

I went in a February and we had snow in Reykjavik and going down south, the impression I got when we went in summer and went up north that it gets very snowy during winter.
