Öxarárfoss (Icelandic pronunciation: ​[ˈœksarˌaurˌfɔsː]) is a waterfall in Þingvellir National Park, Iceland. It flows from the river Öxará over the Almannagjá [ˈalˌmanːaˌcauː]. The pool at the base of the waterfall is filled with rocks and is often extremely icy during winter.

The waterfall is one of the main attractions of Þingvellir National Park and there is a path from the nearby car park leading up to it.

  • Amazing waterfall! Worth the walk to it! They have a lot of areas by the waterfall for photography and just to sit and look at the waterfall. I would go back!

  • Walk on the boardwalk and enjoy this small waterfall up close and personal when visiting thingvillir national park. You can sit on the edge of the boardwalk and just soak it in.

  • we visited here on a very snowy day and saw the waterfall whilst about 90% frozen. Despite this it was still incredible to see and worth the drive. Also had toilet facilities, that although were not the best, were still usable. Do have to pay for parking though.
  • Amazing waterfall. The walk down is a little rocky but also adds to the adventure. Had a great time getting to the waterfall and being in front of it. Would definitely stop here
