One of the highlights of my Iceland holiday. You can get up real close and feel the negative ions emanating from the falls. The whole place is terrific with great walks in the area for the more adventurous.

This is the classical example of a large, impressive waterfall with a deep drop. The parking area is about 1/4 - 1/3 mile from the site. The walk on a rainy, cold, windy day is daunting and not much fun. Thank goodness, the surface is...More

Don't get me wrong, the waterfall itself is awesome. You even get a mini rainbow infront of it in the afternoon when the sun hits the mist. However, there are just way too many people standing and gawking around that it is impossible to get...More

The fall is very close to the ring road, so the access should be available. From the parking is only a few meters on foot to the waterfall
