This definitely is NOT the hike to Glymur. Glymur, which is the second highest waterfall in Iceland is close, but the trail to it does not go to the lake like this at all. Please rename this trail so as not to mislead potential adventurers!

Definitely worth taking the short ferry to see the island. I saw some seals sun bathing on the coast and the walk is very accessible.

awesome trail with mesmerizing views. River crossing can be cold during the fall months (crossed oct.10th), make sure to bring a towel to dry off feet and water shoes if possible as rocks are slippery and jagged. I dont suggest you cross with your hiking shoes as you'll need to keep your feet warm and dry after crossing. Make sure to choose shallow areas, spots we choose never went above the knee. It's not an easy task but the view on the right side is worth it. Highly suggest you start on the left side as the trail is marked clearly-ish and head down on the right side (1st crossing will be at top of falls, 2nd would be where the log would be) as the trail is not marked clearly and it's easier to identify it going down then up. it took us a total of 4 hours to do the loop with stopping for photos.

la ruta bonita está solo disponible en verano, en invierno no se puede cruzar el río. el camino por la vera derecha esta mal señalizado. merece la pena intentarlo, la subida es interesante. nosotros volvimos por otro camino, bien señalizado en la cumbre y más tranquilo para la bajada

Great hill for beginners Great view from top

Terrible hike! Prepare for disappointment if you hike on the left side! Clearly the hike is meant to be viewed from the right side. No good views on the left. Unfortunately, the only way to get on the right side is to cross a river with a log and wire which was not available at the time we went (Oct 4). Furthermore, if you follow All Trails suggestion and hike the left side, it will suggest a closed route that is severely overgrown with foliage, dense bush, and loose rocks. I can see the potential however, and would love to do the hike over again but on the other side of the gorge.

Best hike I’ve ever been on!!! We went on September 28th and the weather was perfect but of course super windy. I am not scared of heights really but a few of the views made my heart skip a beat- absolutely worth it though. The first water crossing was fine, the log and wire were helpful. We did the 2nd water crossing and probably should have gone a little further down the river to do it- but it worked out fine, water was about knee high. The hike back down is easy so we just kept our wet boots on. 10/10 recommend this hike- best part of our trip!!!

This trail is absolutely gorgeous! If you’re not afraid of heights and you’re in Iceland, definitely give this a visit! I’d also recommend doing this hike with Helga Bara! She’s insightful, sweet, very considerate, and encouraging. Not for the faint of heart!

Best hike of my life. Glymur is big and beautiful. The trail is pretty easy to follow but it's also very tough terrain.

Unbelievable waterfall. It worth it.

Incredible view of the Glymur waterfall. If you want to do a full loop, you will need to do two water crossings. One includes a log which will not be available during winter times, the other a crossing of the river with depths up to knee deep. Well worth it!

2 hour round trip for those in shape! cross the river with the cable and log and continue to the top. trail brings you down the other side of the falls back to the parking lot. You will have to cross the river a second time. Continue hiking until you see the post with the man holding trekking poles and cross the water exactly there to the other side to descend. At the beginning of the trail you will see a yellow directional arrow on a stone directing you to the right. follow the trail right for a more enjoyable experience and better pictures. If you go left you will be bored ascending up.

Well the hike is beautiful with very good sceneries. The problem is that there is always off trails from which you have to stick to the Trail recorded here on All Trails. However there is a point where you have to cross the river(imagine in sept where the river is high) to see the awesome view of the Waterfall, it's literally impossible to pass on your own. I helped a friend and 4 other Hikers to pass by holding the Wire up high to the level of the person passing on the wooden tree. Idk lots of places needs to be more innovation to help the Hikers on continue the hike. Overall I liked it.

We went up the right side (south ???) and crossed the river at the top. STRONGLY recommend going up the right, the views are amazing and I wouldn’t want to go down that way. We took the easier (red) route down, no scrambling, but no view of the river either. The way up was a bit steep, the ropes helped, but SO worth it. If you go up, have someone push on the cable to tighten it for the first river crossing—-much easier. I had Chaco sandals and my sister had old sneakers to wear for the top river crossing—we had absolutely no difficulty crossing—we just walked right across. Also had a quick dry towel for putting our docks and boots back on. We are in our 50’s and did the whole thing with stops for food and photos in 2 1/2 hours. Even on a cold, foggy and rainy day, this trail was awesome.

Do not follow all trails. There will be a fork at the beginning with the map on the right, go left. Once you hit the second fork (very early in the trail before the trail on all trails forks) GO LEFT! There is a small rock with an arrow and regardless which way it points, go left. This takes you up to the top of the ridge with no large water crossings. Once you get to the top of the falls you can choose to cross the river above the falls to see the view of the falls from the other side. It’s a beautiful hike going either way. The falls are gorgeous on both sides. Aside from being hard to follow and terribly marked the trail and hike are BEAUTIFUL.
