It's just an in your face take no prisoners waterfall. Large, powerful, beautifully symmetrical. Walking to the top is 374 steps. We counted. Worth it if you can do it.

Skogafoss is another beautiful waterfall which you need to see when visiting Iceland. You will not regret that you stopped here. Fascinating power and amount of water. Nice place to relax and have a break.

This waterfall is so strong, legend has it there's a chest of treasure still stuck underneath it. But who needs the chest of treasure when gazing upon this natural treasure. A must see while in Iceland!

The waterfall up close was really impressive, and then being able to walk behind the waterfall was even more amazing. Great spot for taking photos, also there is a small cafe stand where you can buy snacks/ drinks plus a cute gift shop. Washrooms are...More

Iceland is the land of waterfalls - on a 9-day trip, we saw over a dozen of them, so I'd encourage you to find ones that offer something unique. Skogafoss has trails that allow you to view it from above, or you can approach the...More

Amazing waterfall!!! We had lunch as the hotel then up to the top of the waterfall. It was a beautiful view. The walk up takes about 20min with kids but is doable. You can see the stream that feeds the waterfall from the top. At...More

You can camp in the Parking Lot. Toilet is open 24 hours. Someone walks by to collect a camping fee. Can't recall how much it was

Hi yes there's a couple of restaurants and restrooms on site very close to the falls. Hope this helps. Try Seljalandfoss falls about 20km from here it's amazing you can walk behind the falls here.
