This is one great big waterfall and a deep deep gorge with roaring water. Tough going when the paths are ice covered and the wind is blowing a gale but hold on tight and go to the very end it is well worth the slide.

Very busy with tourists but incredibly impressive waterfall and the lamb soup in the cafe was good too. Some of path quite slippy but was being cleared. Toilets available as well.

We went here in the middle of a snowfall which was awesome. It was so beautiful. The perfectly deep blue colored water flowing heavily in the middle of landmass full of snow. Truly beautiful!

wonderful waterfalls .... but lots of tourists pushing and trying to see ... we stayed on the upper level - too long of a wait to go down the steps to see them from below. Watch out for the slippery walkway near the cross-bridge .......More

What an amazingly powerful waterfall! It was very cold and snowing when we arrived but we braved the biting cold to get the best views we could. Parking at the bottom can be a bit hairy with bad weather so take it steady. Wrap up...More

Where are you staying? In which town? The Golden Circle is a must-see and it certainly is worth a detour.
