Nice little walk.
Like the waterfall at the end
Bring your cleats so you can go walk behind the fall during winter
We were able to pet the horses.

Super difficult switchbacks all the way up on sand! Went on a foggy day and the higher you climb the rainier it gets, and no view- ended up turning around. Would definitely go back with more experience and on a better day

We had a little trouble finding the trail head, but just look for the little ladder over the fence and you’ll know you have the right spot.

It’s ok like some of the people said it’s more of a walk than hike. I walked more like speed walked cuz it was raining sideways and 20 mph rain made it un-enjoyable. I was soaked by the time I got back to my car.

Super pretty in the winter time had a lot of fun hiking it!

Awesome. Totally different from what you think. You get the sense you are in the middle of nowhere. May bother some people.

Very easy. Expected more. Better hiking in Iceland than this one.

the trail part of the hike was very easy. We went in October and saw some great rainbows on the walk back, but the real fun was going up on the glacier. we brought our own micro spikes and hiking poles and went without a guide. there's so much traffic on the glacier that it was easy to follow the paths of the tour groups without following behind them. crossing the medial moraine was a bit more complicated, had to go pretty far up, but definitely worth it (to us)

Cool to experience behind the waterfall views. Very easy hike.

Short hike to waterfall. Really pretty. Very crowded with tourists

Hidden gem. Still unkown and therefore no turist

Beautiful easy hike.

Facile. Terrain plat. Nous sommes allez pour le couché de soleil. Retour à la noirceur donc peu de touristes. Sentier bien délimité.

Beaucoup de monde

Magnifique.
Ramassez vos déchets en rentrant..

Incredible waterfall and such a cool experience to be able to walk behind it. After you leave continue down the path to the right (away from parking) to a small, even more impressive hidden waterfall! You have to walk through a small cave to get to it. It was my favorite waterfall in Iceland.

Easy to get to and beautiful waterfall.

Very fun experience to go behind this big waterfall. But even better... hike down the path to Gljufrafoss! You have to step on some stones over a small creek into a cave to get to these hidden falls but it’s worth it. Loved visiting both falls.

Did 13.0 of the 15.4 miles in a day hike. Almost finished it but the snow was very hard and windy and we needed to turn around to catch a flight back home. The hike had at least 30 waterfalls and was MY FAVORITE hike in Iceland. Such varied terrain and beautiful views of the mountains, mountain caps and of course the ocean south coast. Lovely hike. Recommend checking weather and going on semi clear day! 10/10 hike!

Busy but you can't help but be impressed. Don't just stick to the bottom: climb the steps to the top and continue going up the path to see more falls and terrific views. There were about 100 people at the bottom and along the top path we came across maybe a dozen people.

The walk is a little bit boring. The black sand beach is beautiful. The plane is nothing extraordinary.

So many waterfalls and changing landscapes. Made it to the second hut in roughly 4.5 hrs. Highly recommend, not a challenging hike but breathtaking!!!

Interesting wreck but sadly people are not respectful - clambering all over it, graffiti etc. It dims what should be an interesting object to view and photograph. As ever a minority ruin it for the majority. It is a heavily walked route so expect crowds

Get away from the chaos of Skogafoss and enjoy this waterfall all to yourself. The hike is short with a few small climbs and the waterfalls is a modest beauty. Ignore one of the reviews below: this trail is very much open. A really lovely short and rewarding hike

Not for everyone but worth doing if you have the time. This is a walk more than a hike. It's a relatively straight and flat march across the beach to the plane crash. Don't expect any more views than what you see from the car park. Do expect lots of people clambering over the wreck, stealing parts and a lot of graffiti, which is a great shame as this is such a unique site.

busy but worth it. do climb the stairs and walk through the gate and further along the views are lovely

Lovely easy hike and gets you away from the crowds. I recommend do this one. A short hike with a big reward

As others have mentioned, you must pay for parking and display the ticket in your window. After paying, there is a short walk for a good view of the falls The mist from the falls will get you wet, especially if you go behind the falls. I HIGHLY recommend taking the short walk to the other waterfall and a gorge. There is a high waterfall in the gorge but it was crowded. I recommend waiting and going into the Gljúfrabúi gorge. It takes about 15-20 seconds to get into the gorge; however, the stream will get your feet wet.

The coolest waterfall experience! Feels amazing to go behind this iconic waterfall.

Long stair climb to the top but beautiful views of neighboring farms and sheep on the way up. Iconic waterfall!
