Impressive waterfall. You're able to get quite near to it but you do get wet! The sun was shining on it when we were there producing a rainbow just in front of the falls.

There are steps up to a view from the top but I didn't take them.

There was lots of water falling over when we were there as it had rained most of the previous day. Our guide said that they are sometimes frozen.

A beautiful gigantic waterfall located just by the ring road. One of the widest Waterfalls in Iceland. You can go very close to the bottom of the waterfall. But you will get so wet by the splashing water when you go closer. There's a trail to go to the upper parts of the waterfall and see if from the top. It's bit steep and might take a lot of effort to reach the top.

Skogafoss is certainly one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever visited. The flow of the water is absolutely strong and as you get closer to the waterfall, you shall certainly get wet. The location would require you either to have your own wheels or go on a tour. In either way, at least an hour is necessary to make the most of the waterfall and the whole experience. Make sure to take waterproof jacket if you plan to get close. There are stairs to the right side from which you can climb up to see the view from above.

You've done the hard work. You've scaled seemingly countless stairs to get a view of Skogafoss from the top. And the view doesn't really disappoint. Most tourists head right back down the stairs and on to their next destination. I can't stress this enough. DO NOT JUST HEAD BACK DOWN THE STAIRS! Continue on the easy to follow trail for the next 2 miles. You will be treated to about a dozen waterfalls (all as, if not more, beautiful as Skogafoss). This was perhaps the most scenic hike I've ever done (and that's saying something) and my personal highlight of the entire Iceland trip.

This was by far the grandest waterfall we saw all week, sadly the heavens opened as soon as we got out the car! But it’s stunning and only of the best waterfalls to get in close.
It’s free and a great stop off, you don’t need too long there but a great thing to see

I might have walked slow up and down the stairs and held up traffic both ways - I did it!!! And the climb was worth it. If we more time had been available, would have walked the remainder of the trail. the waterfall from top and bottom was beautiful. Definitely need rain gear!

Impressive, you can get really close to the falls, and then there is a steep climb to the top, from where you get really stunning views.

Absolutely stunning and so peaceful there. Quite a few tourists but you are still able to get some stunning photos. Make sure you look out for the rainbow.
