It's Iceland, everything is beautiful.

Cheating a little bit . . . we did a full day hike during a day tour from Reykjavik. Other than climbing on a glacier, the best thing we did in Iceland. Beautiful, ever-changing landscapes with multi-colored hues. Absolutely stunning. THIS is why you came to Iceland!

The geyser erupts often

Easy walk to the glacier, beautiful scenery, wanted to go into the ice but didn't have the proper equipment.

challenging , breathtaking. Like hiking through a painting with changing landscape around every turn.

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

Great walk. We actually walked all the way to Skógar with an extra day-hike in the Þórsmörk valley. So, 7 days in total.
Truly amazing landscape but very crowded in summer (although a river crossing is easier because you'll see where others are crossing). Unfortunately no wildcamping allowed.

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.

Very beautifull trail

Amazing trail... only difficult in extreme weather which we encountered one day of the 4. I was initially worried about the weather as we were camping in a tent all three nights but I felt very confident in our REI Quarterdome tent with a few extra guy lines that I usually would not need in the Sierras. Anyone worried about tackling this tent camping the whole way without a guide shouldn't be. As long as you have the appropriate gear you will be fine. There is no such thing as cold, wet and miserable, it just means that you were under prepared.

The most beautiful place

Amazing run with my wife to celebrate our one year anniversary. Stayed at the Hvanngil hut half way. Ran with our excellent guide Birkir, which also turned out to be a brilliant chef!( www.arcticrunning.is )

rock climbing

This area is amazing. Should you want to walk onto the glacier, crampons are a must. Great ice climbing. But hire a local guide who knows the best spots.

Very easy, no stairs or rocks to climb and a very quick stop on the way to Gullfoss. Pretty heavily trafficked, but still easy to get a good front row view even during peak times.

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.

Probably the world's greatest trail.

I did this trail when I went to Iceland last summer (2016) with my native friend and as well as being considerably difficult to reach the top of one of the mountains through rocky, snowy, and other kinds of terrain, it was also indescribably beautiful and would do it all 1000 times over.
I only regret that I didn't have the app at the time of my time here.

Scenery was unlike anything I've ever seen!

Amazing trail that can be really hard when the weather conditions are not ok. On this trail you can see everything that Iceland has to offer: volcano, hot springs, rivers with drinking water, glacier, waterfalls etc.

Iceland's most popular trail and trek. It features ever changing and stunning scenic views across volcanic terrain, tundra and over mountaintops. It starts in Landmannalaugar and end in the forests of Thorsmork. The trekking season is quite short and is heavily traveled, mostly north to south. There are huts along the way which can also be camped at with tents.
