Nice Waterfall, Trail is a bit dangerous in Winter
Feb. 2020
The Waterfall is very nice when you get there, even though the water is closer to a trickle in the winter. However, large parts of the trail to the waterfall are iced over in the winter and therefore extremely slippery. Not recommended unless you have good crampon. At some parts you basically have to sit on the trail to slide down, otherwise you risk slipping and falling off the trail down the hill.

Skaftafell Park admin not able to return parking fee
Jul. 2020
I paid the paring fee and later decided to stay in the campground (guests do not have to pay for parking on the arrival day). I asked the admin to return the fee, he replied something like "working on the task" but I never received a dime back. And never heard of them anymore. Sad

RIPP OF AT THE NP
Oct. 2019
As everything else related to the miracle of nature, so this is also a marvelland worth the visit..a note of caution to all that visit National Parks and stay in the campsites...BE CAREFUL.... as mu ch of the rest of Icelands tourism boom , so they are also learning the art of cheating the tourists. We stayed at their campsite, were visited by rangers in the evening to pay for the motorhome stay, paid and as instructed by rangers, we checked in with the NP front desk in the morning and showed them the campsite receipt which exonerates you from paying the visitors parking.After that we recorded all pertinent info into their machine at the desk. Two months after we received a fine to the tune of 60euro for not paying the NP visitor "parking fee".... so much for integrity at the federal Icelandic level. To all .........KEEP ALL YOUR RECEIPTS.....!!!

Frozen beauty under tough weather
Mar. 2020 • Solo
A 25km head wind and lots of loose snow made this more challenging than usual. By the time I got to the main event the trail was all but lost under 60cm of powder.

Not as beautiful in winter
Feb. 2020
The slippery hiking path takes about 30 minutes from the carpark and can be traversed in normal boots, but closer to the waterfall, crampons are advised. The waterfall is surrounded by basalt rocks, making it look larger than it actually is. We went in winter, and the water flow was just trickling, barely enough for a nice dramatic photo. Therefore we stopped at the high vantage point for photos and turned back. You could climb a bit more and go down into the valley, where there is a bridge across just above the river, giving a nice view of inside the waterfall. Parking is not free and

Nice walking path
Jan. 2020 • Couples
I really don’t understand the bad reviews in the wintertime walking up the waterfall . It was so difficult like they said. And we also didn’t need crampons. The hike was about 30 min and it was beautifully. We had so much snow there ! I definitely recommend going there !
