Amazing waterfall where you can take nice photos up close to the waterfall. It is a bit slippery during winter season, and you will get wet the closer you are with the mist. This is worth going to!

Visited the waterfall after going on a glacier hike. Beautiful day and there is a staircase to walk up and view it from the top.

We hired a car and drove around the whole island, we happened to stumble upon Skogafoss and we weren't disappointed. You will get wet if you get close and before you know it your drenched so be careful.

Like many of the natural wonders in Iceland, Skogafoss was beautiful, unique and not difficult to access. I pretty much hopped out of my car and within minutes was being sprayed by the waterfall and snapping shots of the big arching rainbow. Definitely don't skip the hike to the top if you have time -- nice to get your legs... More

Iceland has the most amazing Waterfalls. My sisters and I, 3 of us did a 6 day stay and rented a 4 wheel drive. We toured the southern part of the Island and took in a lot of sites off the beaten path. Well worth seeing !

Free parking and also close by fish and chips place to eat right as you make left into the way to skogafoss. There is no restrooms. However be prepared to climb 400 flights of stairs to see the view of the waterfall from above. It is truly breathtaking from top so be sure to climb up the stairs if your... More

Another waterfall that you can see from the carpark. It was wild and woolly when we arrived but we braved the elements and got up close and personal. On walking back to the carpark the rain stopped - just like that - and the sun was out. We turned back and a rainbow had formed in the waterfall (amazing to... More

As the title, this is a beautiful waterfall. We visited on a coach trip, meaning we had less time than we'd have liked and it was busy. Probably better to try and get here early in the morning if you're driving yourself. I'm reasonably fit and seeing the bottom and the top was a challenge in our 20min stop (I... More
