From the bottom, waterfall looks great, especially with people for scale. It is also worth to climb up. The view from the balcony is ok, less waterfall and more vistas. If you decide to hike up (we did ~1 km), you will be rewarded with...More

Great and powerful waterfall. But Seljalandsfoss is more spectacular! Crowdy, and not easy to take pictures without a lot of people in the frame.

Bucket list opportunity to walk as far as your nerve will take you under (into) a massive, thundering waterfall. Put on all your rain gear, goggles, and get to marching deep into the falls, and there will be no other tourists:) We got in so...More

Skogafoss was an impressive waterfall even when it came into view from the main road. Camping was possible there, so there were toilets and showers. There was also a very nice bistro on the grounds, but we did not visit there. Lots of people here.

I went back in Dec 2016, and it was very windy and cold. It was hard to get close because the water from the waterfall was blowing on you with the wind. It looked amazing in the winter because parts of the river underneath it...More

Skogafoss is great, accessible, easy to get to , and if you can climb you have a large path of stairs to go for it and see the waterfall from it's top. It was raining so I skipped the climbing, yet, as parking is good,...More

No road trip is complete without visiting Skogafoss. The waterfall is just off Route 1 and is easy to access, the shear size and power makes it a popular attraction. We left it until quite late to visit this time around in the hope of...More

Not sure if there is electricity availble to use - there is a modern cafe nearby and, within the camping ground a hut for facilities (showers and toilets) which may have shaver outlets. If you spoke to the folk in the cafe... More
