We stopped here as our last stop of our day, and as our first stop of the following day since we were staying at the nearby Skogar Hotel. Not too many people at the end of our first evening, which was nice. We also parked...More

Absolutely worth a stop as it's beautiful. However if going when colder it's very icey yo walk to them, be prepared to walk on ice. Your best bet might be to have waterproof boots to your knees and walk up the river (it's shallow) or...More

Normally when you go see some attractions it’s usually a huge walk to get to see them. Literally you can see the waterfall from the car park. Parking was free... The waterfall is a stunning we managed to see it yesterday when the Sun was...More

This is my favourite Icelandic waterfall, it represents the great power of water. When the sun hits the area, the golden Icelandic moss glitters in the sun and beautiful rainbows are formed over the waterfall. A beautiful experience. NB! It is quite slippery around it!

Didn't have a lot of time to stop but it looked cool from the road. Had already seen a lot of waterfalls on our trip. Would like to hike to the top if I make it back to Iceland.

There is a trail to the top of the waterfall. You can access to the top even in winter. The trail is steep and slippery. It's better to bring your ice cleats. This waterfall is near to "Seljalandsfoss", so you might want to plan visiting...More

These falls are just a very short drive from the Glacier Walks on the south of the island – if you do the walk, it would be utter madness not to visit the falls too. They are over two hours away from Reykjavik, so I...More

Like most attractions, if it is close to the main road, it is guaranteed to be packed with tourist. Since I was there in the winter with proper waterproof gear, I was able to get close without the spray bothering me.

If it’s just at ground level 30 mins should be adequate. If you want to reach the upper levels allocate 1& 1/2 hours to 2 hours dependent on your exploring needs.

As above, I don't think you will have any issues visiting unless there is some really unfortunate weather.
