We rented Airbnb right by Kirkjufell Mountain, so we stopped by the waterfall after we checked in. We read plenty of the article about how small it is, so our expectation was adequate. However, with the GOT mountain in the background and covered in snow, I can see why this fall attracts so many folks. I was bit surprised to see about 15 people or so taking pictures with tripods and expensive camera equipment even after the sunset. Those are hardcore enthusiast right there, and I hope their pictures came out better than mine...

A great photo opportunity of Kirkufjell mountain and associated waterfall. Can get very busy with coach tours but still managed to get some good photos.

Car park is currently being upgraded and will shortly start charging for parking.

Really nice hostel positioned a few kilometres away from Vik. The staff is very nice and there is a great vibe and atmosphere. The dormitories have 6 beds each. Each bed has a curtain that offers quite some privacy. Beds, toilets and showers very clean. It offers free linens and towels. I really enjoyed my staying. And don’t miss the happy hour for a couple of affordable beers!!

From the parking lot, you could already see how amazing Kirkjufell mountain is! I was pretty much mind-blown. You could admire a series of mini waterfall as you amble around it on the structured walkway. But of course, the star of the show is imperatively the mountain as the backdrop!

This was a lovely, picturesque stop on the loop around the peninsula. If you are a Game of Thrones fan, you definitely want to stop for the view of the mountain. The falls are easily accessible from the parking area, and it is a short walk to the bottom of the falls. Be prepared for crowds, but depending on the time of day and season, you may luck out. We were there in the middle of the afternoon, so there were a lot of people. However, everyone was courteous to others about picture taking.

This was a very beautiful spot for photos, although it was a bit crowded when we got there at around 10 am. Better to arrive early and have a wide-angle lens with you to capture the view. Also, be prepared to pay for using the car park.

These waterfalls are small, but they are part of the photo op with Kirkjufell in the background. :-) It is a beautiful place and right off of the main road with a parking lot; however, expect to be surrounded by photographers with tripods. It's best if you can get there in the evening for the sun being lower in the sky behind the mountain.

Kirkjufellsfoss is perhaps the most iconic sight on the Snæfellsnes peninsula. It a small and easy to visit waterfall which is pretty even on a grey and cloudy day. Can get very busy so try come early or late before the hoards if you want to get an Instagram classic of the falls and Kirkjufell mountain in the background.

Wonderful view. The waterfall itself, compared to others in Iceland, may not make a great impression, but the location and proximity of the Kirkjufell mountain - this is it. It is the waterfall with an absolutely amazing scenery. Perfect place to take pictures of Kirkjufell mountain .
Can be cold and windy, but it is really pretty. The surrounding scenery makes that it's worth seeing. The parking is free.

It’s pretty, easy to get to and makes a nice picture but there are definitely much better waterfalls in Iceland and much more photogenic sites. Ended up here midday and there were a lot of tourist. If you are driving by go ahead and stop, but I honestly wouldn’t go out of the way for it.
