You have to climb over a stile, walk through a pasture and hike up a short canyon to see this fall, but it is well worth it. It doesn't have the size of Skogafoss, but it is certainly photogenic.

You can see this waterfall from the street and it’s only a 10 minute walk behind the museum, but still hardly anyone goes there. It’s such a beautiful and peaceful little valley just next to the crowded skogarfoss. Definetly a must-do and a nice photo...More

We visited one morning around 11 and there was no one around...it was magical...you have to hike for about 15-20 minutes but it’s a nice walk...and at the end you are rewarded 😀 You can go behind the waterfall and rhe view is great.

Directions: Walk from west from Skogafos—will have to cross a fence or two so be respectful of people’s property and use the stile. Turn left at the stream that’s about 10 ft/3m wide, and follow the trail and stream into the gulch to the end,...More

A little east of Skogafoss deep inside a gorge, you’ll find the beautiful Kvernufoss waterfall. As the waterfall is well hidden in the gorge, you’ll need to hike for about 10-15 minutes, over a few boulders etc. But this is well rewarded.

Kvernufoss is definitely,off the beaten path, but that ,earns you’ll have it all to,yourselves! Check guidebooks and maps carefully to find and navigate the trail. After a short hike you are rewarded with Very nice of the falls from unique perspectives.

Seeing this waterfall requires a little bit of hiking, and there is no tour bus that goes here. Like Seljalandsfoss, (which has become extremely commercialized since I was last in Iceland in 2012), you can walk behind these falls for some spectacular views. Park in...More
