  • The hike up is beautifull and after a short while you pass the Basaltrock fall Litlanesfoss.The colours of the layers rock is really amazing of the Hengifoss. After about 1,5 hours walk you can not go...  more »
  • The highest waterfall in Iceland. But with little flow during the summer. The combination of the basaltic formations and clayey strata of red-orange color make it spectacular. The ascent is a bit hard, but not impossible to make it even with children. Bring water and something to eat for the ascent. It takes about an hour to upload it.

  • This is quite some trek to get up the hillside to see the waterfall. However, you see most of it on the way up and even at the top you don't see the whole of the falls. Glad we went but wouldn't go ag...  more »

  • Gorgeous waterfall with a decent hike that makes the reward even sweeter. Parking area has a toilet and all 🙌
  • The 40 to 60 minutes walk and the 400 meter elevation is an excellent hike and gives the waterfall an extra flavour. In addition you pass Litlanesfoss on your way up which is a beautiful basalt column waterfall. I you are traveling in the East Region in Iceland don´t miss this waterfall.
  • A good ~45min hike to get to the top, but you also see Litlanesfoss waterfall about half-way, which serves as a nice rest stop and is worth the hike on its own.
  • Very impressive and roaring waterfall, you can hike almost to the base of it, jumping on stones for the final part. The hike there is worth it by itself.
  • Took us 2 hours to go up and down, and take some pictures. A long walk but with beautiful view, cliff on one side, soooo many flowers (and sheep) on the other. For geometric fans, you can spot column rocks and red layers formed by volcanic ash.
