AMAZING waterfall. So cool to be able to walk behind it. My favorite waterfall in Iceland.

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

Beautiful waterfall. But do yourself a favor and follow the trail above Skogafoss. More waterfalls, fewer people, terrific views.

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

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

Cool waterfall quick walk takes maybe 5 mins pay to park and crowded

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.

I was there in May and took an early morning hike beyond the gate. There is a five mile trail that follows the river and it lets you view a ton of waterfalls. The photos came out amazingly. The only downside was that the day I was there was extremely windy. So windy that I ended up turning back about 2 miles in after I almost got blown off the plateau and into the river.

Great for photos! Bring a rain jacket. The wind can carry the water off the falls quite a distance.

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.

Beautiful, short walk. Pretty easy, but there are some wet, rocky areas to navigate that I noticed others had some difficulty with. If you can manage it, it is worth it. Don't forget rain gear or a change of clothes! Maybe try going in the early morning to avoid the crowds and make sure to walk down to the other falls as well.

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.

V-1 Eyjan hill in Vesturdalur
Distance: 1 km (circle)
Walking time: 0,5 hr
Starting point: Campground (by the more easterly WC)
Route difficulty: Challenging route (red).

From the campsite in Vesturdalur a short trail leads around the northernmost point of Eyjan, the “Island”, in Vesturdalur. Along the way you pass moss covered rocks and small ponds. This short walk is ideal for an evening stroll.
