Came here with the golden circle tour in April. It was wet and cold so make sure you have the proper wear for the season that you're visiting. The walk to the fall is not hard but it does get slippery. View is breathtaking and...More

Impressive waterfall with no hiking involved. Parking lot is right beside the falls. They’re beautiful & free to visit, keep that in mind as there will be plenty of people around.

This waterfall is majestic, has a very interesting history and is one of the must-see attractions of the Golden Circle. The place is well-marked and tended for, the view is amazing and the photo spots are plenty. This is a very nice place.
