A short hike to a close up view of this beautiful waterfall is so worth it that we decided to do it again the following day on the other side. It was so beautiful, so powerful, such an amazing sight to behold.

A visit to these falls was included as part of a tour. We had an hour here and could have spent longer as there are great photo opportunities. You can walk along both sides of the falls. Lots of parking. Gift shop, cafe and toilets.

Donā€™t get me wrong, this is an impressive waterfall, but the main point about the hype is the fact that itā€™s situated right next to the ring road. Therefore it is always swarmed with busses. Still worth a visit though....

Iceland is so blessed with nature. We planned to see several waterfalls, but this was not planned. Thank god we passed by and noticed it. It is a beautiful waterfall, unspoiled, similar to most waterfalls, and not commercialized. You can just walk around this beautiful...More

Hiking trails line both sides of the waterway and there are trails down to the lower part of the falls as well. This reminds me of Niagra Falls in the US. Roaring water. Amazing vistas.

It's a great place to visit. It's free and close to the road, with a big parking. You can see the waterfall from both sides of the river.

It would cost a serious amount of money - best option is to join an organised trip or hire a car for the day

Renting a car is also a good idea if you are a +4 people group.
