Amazing waterfall- definitely worth a stop if you are driving along the Ring Road. Even though it is crowded, the roar of the waterfall is so intense it is all you can hear. If you only want to stop for a second you will be at the base of the waterfall and can get some great views and photos. If you have the time and energy, climb up to the top of the falls but following the route here, or continue on the extended hike, here: https://www.alltrails.com/trail/iceland/southern/skogafoss-waterfall-extended-hike

This isn't really a hike... it's a stair climb. The views are pretty though. Just be prepared for a lot of stairs. If you are good with that, then it's an easy "hike"

Easy walk to the falls, the climb to the top was a bit of a challenge, but manageable.

Easy hike, we decided to skip the stairs and just go straight up to the bottom of the falls. It was awesome to be able to get so close!

Easy hike, ton of stairs at first, very windy. But the short hike reveals at least two more waterfalls. Spectacular scenery.

Easy access to the falls. Lots of people. Hundreds of steps to the lookout, but well worth the effort.

Awesome spot that you can practically drive right up to. Eat at the restaurant right when you pull in by the falls it is a great place to sit and watch the falls as well.

Incredible waterfall, worth seeing even with crowds. Weather is all over the place so wear layers. Worth climbing to the top for awesome views.
