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

If you're driving around Iceland, you'll easily see this from the road and it demands that you stop to soak in the experience. A gorgeous waterfall that is a "must see"

Iceland is definitely the country of waterfalls! This one also can't be missed! An absolute beauty! There is a very long set of stairs / steps that you could take all the way to the top to capture the whole experience. Slight warning: it was quite strenuous to get to the top. But once up there, the view is spectacular... More

This waterfall offers views from the bottom, short walk from parking lot or you can climb the stairway to the top. A restaurant, restrooms and information center on site. A great museum named "Skogar museum" that captures about 1000 years of life in Iceland is only a few hundred yard away.

Iceland's waterfalls are amazing. This one is quite approachable. You can stay on the bottom and get a nice feel for it, but if you're in for going up the hill a bit, the viewing area near the top is stunning.

Skogafoss is visible from Ring Road. Make effort to climb the 500+ steps to the top for the stunning view. Great photograph opportunity with beautiful rainbow across the falls.

Very nice and picturesque waterfall and provided great photo ops. We were there in winter so there was not alot of people. It was quite easy to get to as well, just off the highway.

Was on route to the glacial lagoon from our accommodation in Mossfellbaer, beautiful, wet and camera worthy! Quite busy with tour buses, but be patient and you can get your photos and get wet from the spray at the same time!

Really amazing to see in person. Yes, this waterfall looks great in photos but until you are there in person and getting soaked by the spray you just won't know how magnificent it is. There are also stairs leading up to the top. We visited on a really rainy day as part of a tour but it was still gorgeous... More
