These falls are a must for your visit to Iceland. Whilst other waterfalls such as Skogafoss are enjoyable this is the big brother....a magnificent set of waterfalls showing nature at it powerful best. Very close to Geysir.

Where are you staying? In which town? The Golden Circle is a must-see and it certainly is worth a detour.
