All reviews basalt columns national park nice hike long walk short hike easy hike visitor center hour hike parking lot up hill my opinion viewing platform the black sand beach falling water enjoy the view hike starts beautiful scenery
The visitors that had extra grips stretched over their boots definitely fared the best. Those without slipped and slid their way there and back along the undulating path. The falls were nice and the rock formations interesting but the short walk there and back is...More
The beautiful photos you see of this waterfall taken from the bottom are shot from a spot not possible to get to on the path, or at least not marked - we’ve never been able to find it in two visits to Iceland. The almost-2km...More
This is a case of the journey itself being the destination. The waterfall is rather modest by Icelandic standards, despite its dramatic surroundings of black basalt columns, but the 2 km walk up to it from the car park is delightful - if strenuous -...More
It took me about 30 minutes walking up and down hill from the visitor center to reach this waterfall. A bit steep at first. So spare at least 75 minutes for the total walk and took some photos. It was sooo beautiful along the way...More
A beautiful waterfall and a great hike from the visitor center to it. It takes about 45 min to get there and a little bit less to come back, pretty steep hike with a beautiful scenery. Totally worth of effort and time!
After heading to the visitor center to pay for parking (a must), I asked about the hike to Svartifoss letting them know that my mother is 75 yrs old. I got the same answer I get from everyone in Iceland, the hike is easy..maybe a...More
This waterfall is about a 40 minute hike from the visitor center. And unlike the other hike to the glacier which is mostly flat, this one you will need to climb a mountain and then down to get to it. They had made it easier...More
It is beautiful waterfall in a very nice nature set up. We have arrived at the upper parking lot, which is still about 35 minutes of fast walk to the fall. It was raining a lot, but we have decided to give it a try....More

Here's the answer to my own question (now that I have been to the Svartifoss Waterfall). The trip to the falls, and the time spent there took a total of about 2 hours. The trail was heavy slush and very slippery in places, and one of our party is a pretty slow hiker. We are photographers and we spend a fair amount of time once we reached the falls taking photographs, both from above and at the base of the falls. Highly suggest using 2 hiking poles as this was very helpful dealing with the slippery conditions, especially the trail leading to the base of the falls
