Beautiful - even in the rain !

Stunning waterfall in a lovely part of Iceland (mossy mountains etc) - it was even beautiful in the pouring rain. Another big waterfall and glacier nearby.

This was a beautiful location to visit. You can get as close to the waterfall as you like and can even climb to the top of it. The floor was frozen when we went though, so just be cautious and wear suitable shoes

Add Skogafoss to the Icelandic check list of things to see. Another iconic waterfall adding more beauty to the already beautiful island. Hike to the top for some great pics, just wished it was not pouring rain the day I went.

There were less people there than I expected but probably due to the inclement weather. It was raining, windy, foggy and misty from the spray. The... More

In the land of waterfalls, you start to get immune to their beauty as one is more impressive than the other. This is a beautiful waterfall but after seeing Gullfoss and Seljalandsfoss this was not our favorite. Still worth a stop and some photos.

As we was driving to the Black Beach in Vic - we saw this waterfall from the road and just had to stop, there was quite a lot of people around taking photo as this is a place the tours will stop. This waterfall is very impressive and great for photos - there are steps to the left which will... More

It's big (one of the biggest waterfalls apart from Gullfoss) and impressive. There's a small toilet and cafe. It's free to park and visit

A must see if you're driving along the south coast. You can view it from the bottom and climb the stairs to get a view from the top.

A stunning waterfall which in the right months you can walk behind. Beautiful to look at and well worth a visit in Iceland.
