The waterfall is not very impressive and we’ve seen taller, wider, nicer waterfalls. But we stopped anyway and took a hike to the summit. It’s a steep climb (mostly via steps) but the view from the top is amazing and made the whole stop worth it.

The systrafoss waterfall is easy to see. You can park next to it. The stream itself is refreshing on a hot day and the waterfall has its own tranquil beauty. What makes the fall really worthwhile visiting is the trail see around it. From the foot (great picnic place on a sunny day) you climb up to the systravatn lake and from there it goes almost all down. At a few point signs have been put up with story's and facts. The hike takes one to one and a half hour when you end up at the foot again. There's also a path to stjornafoss and raudarfoss and systrapi rock.

This is a lovely dual waterfall, located just outside the village of Kirkjubaejarklaustur‬.
The translation of the falls' name is "sister falls", either because it's a dual waterfall or due to the sisters in a nearby church.
Either way, it's an easy walk to the waterfalls and a moderate climb to the top of the hill where you can see the lake from which the waterfalls get their water.

Beautiful waterfall almost in the "centre" of the village. It's really worth it to climb up to the hill above the waterfall where there is Systravatn lake and stunning views to the surrounding area. It was a very tranquil place. It takes about 20-30 mins to go up and a little less to come back. The trail is in an okay condition and clearly marked (it starts next to the waterfall by Klaustus-Hof Guesthouse). Might be slippery in the winter.

we loved staying at Hotel Magma, great accommodations and food on site! Make sure to enjoy a soak at the local pool with awesome views of Systrafoss from the hot tub. Great short hiking options nearby. A great place to stop and adventure if you are heading East.

There was only one of the twin falls with water so perhaps not quite as impressive as usual. Our tour bus stopped for a photo opportunity which is perhaps all you need.

We went there at the end of the day, under the rain, and still like that we found it beautiful to see.

Very nice falls within the town limits. Its free to visit and free to park. I would say the hike is fairly tough to go up and can be slippery if wet.

Go up, enjoy!

Hi guys
The top was to far for me.
It rained and the path was slippery.
It is a small foss.
Not worth a detour.

The waterfall is not as impressive as other waterfalls in Iceland but the hike to the top and a quick and easy one and has some nice views of the area.
