It’s a fantastic hike from downtown Eglisstadir to the Fardagafoss and the Onno-Óltifoss. First there was the smaller Gufufoss and then I passed the Onno-Óltifoss which was very nice and relaxing for a short rest. Next was the Fardagafoss which is accessible by ropes.

It was a little rainy and windy today, when we started the uphill hike to the falls. By the time we reached the tip, we were in the clouds with about 100 meters of visibility, so our photos were slightly cloudy.

Moderate difficulty hike. Some steep climbs, but not as bad as Svartifoss. It was very windy and a bit cold. We walked through some clouds! The visibility was low, especially as we neared the trail's end, but we could still see the waterfall. Top of the trail had lots of colorful vegetation. Suggested duration: 60 minutes round trip

This is an easy walk to get to from Egilsstadir. It takes about an hour to walk to the car park, then about 30mins to get to the waterfall. The walk is along the roads, so be mindful of cars. It was a very rainy day when I visited, so I actually had the whole waterfall to myself! There are some steps down to the waterfall, there’s a chain you can hold onto as it’s actually quite steep/slippery. There is supposed to be a cave behind the waterfall, but there was no evident way of accessing it without getting very wet, so I gave it a miss. A lovely, easy walk along the river with great views.

Driving from Egilsstadir over the mountain pass you see some fleeting glimpses of a waterfall, it's very easy to miss the small car park and information board. However, once there, it's a short 25 minute walk (uphill) to the main falls. There is an excellent drop after only a few minutes walking, the colours of the ground were great in September. The walk is worth the effort, not the biggest falls but you get them to yourself.
