This waterfall is a single drop into a cascade below and is very close to Reykjavik. We stopped here on our way back from a day trip and it was very pleasant and relaxing. Seemed to be very popular... more »
Gorgeous waterfall with several spots to take photographs of it if you're.. adventurous... 😂 Easy 1/5 difficulty hike to get there that takes max 15-20 minutes in my opinion. Touristy but still a nice Foss! 😍
Really pretty waterfall in an area with fascinating historical significance. The park is easy to drive to. Parking is paid, but with the app it’s cheap and super easy. There is a boardwalk to the waterfall which makes access a breeze. And getting to witness the continental divide in person is absolutely incredible. Definitely worth the trip here!
