This is a nice looking, high waterfall that can be seen directly off of the Ring Road in Skogar. There's a parking lot not far from its base and a trail that leads up to the top of the falls. While it's not huge and "awe inspiring" (like Niagara Falls, for example) it's super easy to get to and worth taking a short break from the road between Reykjavik and Vik in the south.

The Skogar Folk Museum is also only a couple of hundred metres away from the bottom if you're looking to add some culture to this natural beauty.

Beautiful backdrop, easily accessible by car. The carpark was very near the waterfall.
One can also walk up a short path from the side of the waterfall to the top.
Unfortunately we visited in rain and gloom, and did not see any rainbows near the falls.

I tried standing so near the waterfall till I it felt like a storm rushing towards me. It was thundering, overwhelming, and beautiful experience, leaving behind the most amazing memory of the whole Iceland road trip.

This beautiful, thunderously loud waterfall is an easy stop if you are traveling on the Ring Road in southern Iceland. You can climb the steps to the top, but the views are best from below, and it's a lovely spot for a picnic.
