This is a nice enough waterfall by most people’s standards, but if you are doing the ring road you have probably already seen better by the time you arrive at Rjukandi. The only reason I stopped here was the proximity to the ring road.

Nice stop along route 1.

Nothing impressive (yeah we tend to become picky after two weeks in Iceland) but beautiful enough waterfall.

Parking is free as of May 2023.

The hike up to the waterfall is a short and easy one. Not for wheelchair though.

Rjukandi is not correct: Rjúkandafoss. See my pic of the sign

The road is bumpy, but doable.
This a amazing fall. Fantastic scenery

Conveniently located right off Highway 1. There a bunch of steep waterfalls along this route in Jökulsá á Dal Valley, but this is the only one that offers a roadside pullover with a small parking lot. This allows you to get out of the car, bring the camera and take the short hike up to the falls. This is a short scenic break in the drive and well worth the time to stop. This is an incredible powerful steep waterfall. Great photo opportunity. There are two "levels" you can view from. One is only a short walk uphill. The second "level" takes you closer, but is a bit more of a climb. You'll be able to clearly see where you are heading along the way from each viewing point.

A small waterfall not far from the road so worth stopping for a few minutes if you're passing by. Freezes in winter.

A short hike takes you to a beautiful cascading fall right off the highway. It’s a great place to stop and stretch your legs for a minute and come up close with one of the many falls you see in this region.

One of many Icelandic waterfalls worth a stop. Gradually upward sloping, easy path to the multi-tiered falls. Not one of the country's most spectacular, but enjoyable.

This waterfall is right on the Ring Road, no detour required! There is a small parking area on the side of the road with an informational sign and a short gravel path to a viewpoint. The path is short but steeper than it looks. The twin waterfalls are stunning and too easy a stop to miss. It can be found at GPS Coordinates: 65.327251, -15.087550 and also goes by Rjúkandafoss.
