This was a pretty steep climb but we were rewarded with some amazing views of the falls and the river. Some of the footpaths off the regular trail look daunting but are worth venturing onto.

Hengifoss is a steep but easy path up a gorgeous volcanic area with a beautiful and powerful waterfall at the end and another only slightly less powerful falls half way up. Well worth doing!

wonderful hike !

Quite steep climb up to Hengifoss

Stunning views of two waterfalls! Bit of a river to cross and a steep at parts but well worth the climb!

Few / no crowds in August? Count me in! Two waterfalls, wonderful trail. Awesome example of basalt cliffs. And the upper waterfall shows off the layers of sediment / volcanic dust that built up over the centuries / millennia (?).

Trail was "up hill" but not steep.
