Pretty waterfall, a 30-40 minute hike from the visitors center. In the wintertime, the waterfall somewhat reduces in volume, but the surrounding lava columns are spectacular nevertheless. The hike to the falls gives a constant view of the Oraefajokull volcano and the southern plains. Note that the path to the waterfalls can be EXTREMELY slippery/iced over. Crampons ARE required - even if they are the basic kind you find at Icelandic gas stations.

This is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. Although rather small it is the surrounding and the beautiful basalt column that makes this waterfall so unique.

By far my favorite waterfall. There are a bunch of historic markers along the way ( the path to the right on your way up gives you more of them), as well as a great geological signpost. The waterfall itself is in an unassuming hilly terrain, making it even more striking against the contrast. The falls are huge, and the pictures can't do it justice.

One of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland, particularly because of the amazing rock formation (columnar jointed volcanic rocks) and the track leading you there. Amazing natural surroundings in one of the most interesting and protected areas of whole Iceland. Stay inside the tracks! It's a 2.2Km walk from the camping site. Been here a few times and every time is like the first. Highly recommended.

Stunning waterfall accessible by a well maintained easy to moderate path which takes about 35 minutes from the visitor centre and car parking.
