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.

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.
