  • Huge waterfall. Not high but very wide. You have to pay 700isk to get in, but you park right next to the falls. Very pretty, worth the stop

  • Nice looking waterfall, but you have to pay to get access to it. There are many beautiful waterfalls in Iceland that are free, so I would advice to find one of those.
  • A nice, not so popular waterfall. The GPS will take you almost to the right place, but it's vary easy to find. Go for it.
