Kvernufoss is more remote than the other waterfalls we visited. Not very visible from the road and requires parking in a commercial area that doesn't shout beautiful waterfall. Then you duck around behind a warehouse and there's a ladder over a fence that brings you...More

It is a delightful walk in right conditions. The gorge looks like something out of a Tolkien novel. The trail is ever so slightly sketchy. Were it muddy, you might slip and fall. Definitely recommend solid shoes with traction.if you have a walking stick, bring...More

This was a very last minute decision to take this easy hike and we are so glad we did. This was one of the most beautiful spots and is a waterfall you can walk behind too. Super easy walk and gorgeous view! We almost missed...More

Definitely one of the better waterfalls in Iceland. No buses full with tourists there; we were almost alone; only one other small group of people there. Not the easiest hike but for sure doable (not for people with a cain). Must see!

My review would be almost the exact as "CanuckTraveller18" just a few reviews below. Our family loved it and it was great to escape the crowds at Skogar Falls. Don't miss it!

This waterfall is not as well-known as Skogafoss, but it’s totally worth seeing. It is very close to Skogafoss, just drive/walk to Skogar Museum and take the path at the back of the building to the right. Climb a small ladder to pass the fence...More

This waterfall blew us away. Perhaps it was the fact that while drives of people are fighting for parking spots to see Skógafoss a few kilometres away we had a relatively easy (20 minutes each way) hike in to a jaw dropping landscape (the hikes...More

Since you’re going to Skogafoss Waterfall anyways, check out these falls. Drive past Skogar Museum, then there are old vehicles parked in front of another building. Right across is a few parking spots. Park there, then walk behind the building the vehicles are parked in...More

We parked behind the Skogar Folk Museum after it had closed and hopped the sheep fence. The trail was not difficult to find - around the bend to the left and then follow the river. It took only 20 minutes or so to get there,...More

Might be. They builed a ladder to cross the fence from Skogar museum and there is a nice path showing the way which... In my opinion.. Is a sign that you are very welcome to visit the waterfall :-)
