  • It's a beautiful little waterfall in pingvellir national park. A small distance from the parking lot, but we'll worth the walk. If the sun is out you could even see a small rainbow as well

  • It's a powerful, scenic waterfall that is easily accessible via a short, 10-minute walk from the parking lot nearest to it. You can get as close as you want to this waterfall, and it's also visible.....  more

  • One of the best waterfall in Iceland because of the amount of water and how close you are to it. The path to get to it it's charming. You have different parking lots. We used the further one and i recommended it. However the beginning was slippery (April) because of the snow and ice.
  • Hike that includes rivers, waterfalls, bridges over water. It's a choose your own length walk so almost everyone can find a length that works for them. There are multiple parking lots with WC (restrooms) at almost every lot. The trails are well maintained and the WC were clean with running water. It was never too crowded since there are so many trail choices.
