Great trail, stunning views, amazing waterfall - couldn't ask for more! Try going earlier in the day on off season or shoulder season to avoid higher traffic times.

Very cool setting. Worth the effort which is minimal.

Very well maintained trail. Good for young families, although it is entirely uphill on the way in. It is a beautiful trail, but compared to the other stuff in Iceland we rated it just ok. Took us about 40 minutes out and back. Very popular trail so we were expecting more wow factor.

Nice hike, but very steep on the way there. The hike was supposed to take over an hour, but we did it in about 40 minutes. The only thing about the waterfall that makes it different is the basalt columns. Otherwise, Svartifoss is just another waterfall and by far not the biggest or most magnificent. If you have plenty of time in the area, do it; but if short on time, it could easily be skipped.
