This waterfall was probably the highlight of my weekend in Iceland. I loved the power and beauty of the area. Looking at the waterfall and seeing it partially and the view of the whole thing amongst the cold, snowy landscape. I also loved the history...More

Visited this feature many times and the only way to describe it is breathtaking. The restaurant also does a classic hearty lamb stew.

Beautiful spot in a beautiful country. The scale of this waterfall makes it a must-see, and the drive to get there is wonderful.

We stopped here on the golden circle tour and it didn’t disappoint. Amazing place in the snow, and on a sunny day it was magnificent. Very cold in the wind there make sure you wrap up and ice walkers are really handy. Great to see...More

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