During our visits, we managed to get a few pictures of the waterfall. However, it was hard to take a picture because of the many people who blocked the magnificent view. There was no limit for how close you could be to the waterfall. There...More

Nice casual entry and easy walk along river to the base of these majestic falls....great photos. It was rainy the day of our visit so opted to forgo the stair climb. Besides, all that water worked so hard to get down to the bottom, I...More

Although we didn't climb the stairs (it was pretty late and winter didn't make it easy nor safe), the waterfall itself is beautiful - probably better experienced in summer, as the freezing mist was not that pleasant ;-) Nevertheless worth seeing, definitely.

One of the most incredible places I have visited. There is more than the waterfall itself: if you take the stairs all the way up you will see the river that feeds the waterfalls in its wonderful surroundings. Can be tricky if travelling with little...More

This waterfall has the width of 82 feet and a drop of 197 feet. When the sun is shining you can usually see a rainbow in the mist. You can walk right up to the waterfall and feel the mist on your face. You must...More

Guess it is part of Eyjafjallajökull .... Beautiful waterfall...you can walk right up to it as it has rocky ground in front. Great scenery too with a farm, cows, and sheep off to the sides. There is a wooden stairway you can climb all the...More

Very impressive and beautiful waterfall and more so the closer you get. Would have loved to have taken the stairs to the top, but time wouldn't permit. Visible from the Ring Road, but definitely worth getting closer.
