Once again, Iceland = waterfalls. This one's a good one. Drive up, get out, and marvel at the sheer elemental force of tonnes of water free-falling and slamming into the pool below. If you don't mind getting a little wet (read: completely drenched), you can...More

Amazing waterfall with scenic views. We stopped at it on our south coast day trip. Climb to the top and you won’t be disappointed!

Worth hiking to the top to get a different view. Can get close to the waterfall on the base as well. Apparently on very windy days the water nearly blows upward and you can stand under and not get wet. It was windy when we...More

Skogafoss was one of our stops on our drive from Vik to Reykjavik and it was stunning. The falls look massive from the road, and as you get closer, they just get bigger and bigger. We were there at the end of October and it...More

The fall is very close to the ring road, so the access should be available. From the parking is only a few meters on foot to the waterfall
