Went here in mid march, and only saw 2 other people on the trail on the way to the Svartifoss. On the way back we passed about 40 people who had come in on a bus. If you can get there early and beat the buses, then you should have the place almost to yourself.

This waterfall is great! Looks like something from another planet.

This trail is heavily trafficked to and at the beautiful Svartifoss waterfall, but only lightly trafficked to and at the intriguing Sel turf houses. Our kids enjoyed having two very different highlights in a single relatively short hike. You can chop off 0.2m by cutting back across a bridge over the river to close the loop earlier if you don't mind getting back on a heavily trafficked trail (we had the slightly longer trail to ourselves).

Great scenery and some interesting Icelandic history to learn about along the way, but very crowded and the waterfall is underwhelming compared to others in Iceland.

well paved trail and beautiful scenery nice easy hike

It was a decent view, pretty crowded but that's to be expected. Definitely a good spot to bring the family if you want to go for a little hike but not spend too much energy on it.

Its difficult to not give this 5 stars yet when I compare this to some of the other breath taking falls here in Iceland I must say that this one is not as spectacular as Skogafoss. The trail is easy but not strollerable, have alot of storge space available on your camera or phone because I took probably 50 pics here. Well around the whole Thingvellir National park area anyways.

Quick little walk to the awesome waterfall. Worth stopping and checking it out.

Easy but pretty hike. A bit of a different experience from my usual New England hikes.
