Easy, but fun. Great falls.

This waterfall is located within Pingvellir National Park. In my opinion, the waterfall is not the highlight of the things to see. The history is interesting and i've never seen a fissure before. You can walk to the several attractions in about 2-3 hours.

A bit of a crowd but still a beautiful and worthwhile walk

There weren’t as many tourists as I anticipated. Beautiful waterfall and the whole surrounding area too.

Beautiful area with fascinating history, but not very peaceful due to the crowds. As with most Iceland points of interest, recommend going early to beat the tourist crowds.

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.

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.

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