To see the water flowing, not from on top of the rock shelf, but from a layer half way down it was very"trippy." I had never seen anything like it. It's beauty put me in a sate of Awe.

The water below the falls was a lovely turquoise. The waterfall comes out of the cliff along the river. So it spreads out. It is very beautiful.

Great place to see two falls . Good cafe. Parking free. Fairly easy access and some great places to get good photographs

This was our last waterfall on a 7 day drive throughout Iceland and I would say our least favorite. It is no doubt unique but not all that impressive and would recommend if you have limited time to spend at other falls such as Godafoss...More

It's strange to see a waterfall that doesn't come off a river or lake. This is rain and snow that seeps its way out of the lava field. Nice walking paths on both sides and across a gorge. The landscape in this valley is stunning...More

These waterfalls come out of the lava. They extend for about an mile. There is parking across for the falls and well set out trails to the view points. There are pay toilets and a restaurant at the location. Definitely worth the visit

Absolutely worth a visit! Enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the waterfall which flows underneath the lava!

Off the beaten track a little in the western part of Iceland and just west of the Geitland Nature Reserve, these falls are low. They don't result from glacier fed rivers as do all the other falls in Iceland, but rather emanate from underground flows....More

It would be far easier to list the places of Iceland that aren’t ridiculously beautiful (not convinced any even exist) but it’s worth hiring a car and exploring where you can. The roads are great to drive on too. When visiting landmark sights, just don’t...More

Unusual, cascading falls where spring water has seeped under and through lava flows so that it exits under the lava and forms 'curtains' of water that extend for about a kilometer as they cascade into the river. We found this extremely beautiful.

I did this almost that exact trip (we didn't do the crater, but we did Grimsey Island) and found ten days was perfect. Although we did this beginning the first week of June, 2017. I would be very worried about road... More
