Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I really enjoyed my visit to Þórufoss as it was much less quiet compared to the other waterfalls we visited during our trip to Iceland. Although there were still some cars and people around, it felt significantly more intimate and special because the vast landscape makes you truly appreciate the awe and beauty of Iceland.

The parking lot is a little patch of dirt off the side of the road, but you can choose to either walk over to the grassy overlook across from the actual falls, or hike the rocky little trail to the foot of the falls. The terrain is a little uneven so I would recommend wearing sturdy hiking shoes.

This unique place is located near the route of Golden Circle and is nice to go there early in the morning when is no other tourist and sun is rising above the waterfall.

Having done the Ring Road - this was our last Iceland waterfall. It’s as good as any other - but what makes it stand out is the lack of other people there. Small free car park with 10 minute pathway down. Worth the slight detour and stop.

This is a stunning quiet spot! We practically had the whole place to ourselves. It was the first waterfall we’d seen on our Golden Circle trip! Beautiful. I believe it was used for filming Game of Thrones. But top tip - don’t bother going if you’ve already seen Gullfoss. It may disappoint!

We had a Golden Circle private tour with some extra Game of Thrones locations. Thorufoss waterfall was our first stop and of course our first waterfall in Iceland. It is a beautiful place and there were no other people. Just the best way to visit nature's wonders - just you and the nature (and of course this case your guide :) ) It is very easy to find - just a short drive from the main route - even if you are touring on your own. At summertime also great place for picnic.

A nice waterfall that is a bit off the beaten track. Not hard to get to, and was also a filming location for Game of Thrones. The weather seemed much rougher here than even ten miles away. We enjoyed what was really our first Iceland stop. Hardly any other people.

We visited twice, mainly due to weather (which wasn't that bad the first visit) and there was noone else there either time.

Pity as it is a nice waterfall that is not hard to get to nor far from the main road to Thingvellir

I do not understand why so few people know about this place! We absolutely loved visiting here, it was just us right until we were leaving when another couple arrived.

It only takes 5 mins to get down to next to the waterfall from the car & you can get really close.

It’s beautiful & we will definitely pay another visit on any future trips to Iceland!

We found this small waterfall on our way from the accommodation. It is a relatively hidden small waterfall, but it makes it is a magical place to stop and a short walk.

This is a must see! If you’re doing the Golden Circle then you must make this a stop! There were no people here when my husband and I got here. It’s a beautiful little hidden gem. It is also featured in Game of Thrones! I could have stayed here all day if I had the chance!
