Beautiful

Very pretty you can walk to the base of the fall. It’s wider than seljalandsfoss. The bar close to the fall looked very cute. The climb up the stairs is not worth it - the view is nothing great

The perfect waterfall
Aug 2021
This is the waterfall of many a visitor’s dreams. Set against basalt cliffs with mosses and grasses along the sides. Wide, swift current whisking away the water down to an oblong pond that drains to the distant sea. It’s gorgeous, often crowded, yet manages to feel personal somehow…a word I never associated with a cascade before. Definitely worth seeing.

Another Gorgeous Icelandic Waterfall
Sep 2021
My husband and I visited Skogafoss as we made our way along the southern coast. The waterfall is so powerful and beautiful, and you're able to get right up to it from underneath and can walk up to see the top as well. The parking lot is only a short walk away. Make sure to bring waterproof clothes, as you get very wet if you walk close on the bottom. It can get pretty busy so early morning is a good time to visit if you want fewer people around.

Took my breath away
Sep 2021
Massive and powerful waterfall. Stairs lead above the waterfall for great views from above, and a pathway lets visitors walk up the river for more scenery; the stairs were medium difficulty. The base of the waterfall is quite large so there are a lot of opportunities for great photos that don't include a lot of people. Parking was free!

Impressive and Powerful Falls
Sep 2021
Prepare to get wet but it is worth it just to be close to these impressive and powerful falls. Super easy to access off route 1 and completely free.

Big waterfall with beautiful rapids above.
Sep 2021 • Friends
A gorgeous waterfall due to its size and power. Compared to other Iceland waterfalls this doesnt have the most interesting geology because it’s essentially one big drop of some 60 meters but still a must see if youre nearby. Parking is plentiful and free, and no fee to enter. You can get very close to the falls, which are very visible from the parking lot. But you can get as close as you want if you don’t mind getting wet. There is also a stairway to the top just to the right of the falls. It takes 6-7 minutes to go up and then you get an impressive view of the falls from there and can even follow the river back for a couple minutes to another short falls and some beautiful rapids. A sign here directs you to two more attractions but we didn’t check them out. The sign said the sights, whatever they were, were 7.5 km and 24.3 km away, respectively. This could be a 2 minute stop or much longer depending on you. But a definite must see.

Just WOW
Sep 2021 • Friends
One of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen. This is an amazing waterfall. The vast amount of water is just unimaginable. Very impressive, makes a great photo as you can walk right up to it - be prepared to get SOAKED.
If you want your photos to look soft (my second photo) put your phone on live, then go into edit and press long exposure.

Necessary Tour Stop on a Ring Road Trip
Aug 2021
This is a necessary but brief tour stop along the southern Ring Road stretch. Free admission, ample parking. A walk up the hillside is available for an top view panaroma perspective. However, you can approach the heavy falling and frigid water and get as close as you would like. You will get wet so wear boots and rainwear. Great photo opp.

Didn´t expect it to be so beautiful
Jul 2021
Maybe a bit strange but this super famous waterfall wasn´t actually on my must-do list in Iceland. Stopping there persuaded me that could´ve been a mistake. It is just beautiful !! The view from the bottom is spectacular (and a bit better than from the top ;-)
