  • Far from having most of the tourist routes, not very big. Looks better in the afternoon or evening, morning okayvaetsja waterfall in kontrovom light-almost goes all in shadow

  • The waterfall itself is beautiful to look at, with clear water. When we were there it was also full of large blocks of ice which gave it a perk. The environment itself is really spit ugly. Very grey and is near worked, leaving every few minutes a big truck along.

  • Hjalparfoss was the first stop of what has probably been our most beautiful day in Iceland. Left of Selfoss, we took routes 30 and 32, without charm. Then from these falls, we have chained the nearby Pjodveldisbaer farm (reconstruction of Stong), before making several hours of track (327 and 332) to see Gjain then the highlight of the day the waterfalls of Haifoss. Hjalparfoss falls are pretty but don't deserve a visit alone. A small, easy trail takes you 32 until the car park opposite the falls. The small lagoon formed is beautiful to see with basaltic rock and greenery. A setting of Elves.

  • This one was a nice surprise on our road tip. I had missed it on the maps, but we saw the sign from the road and went there. The falls are visible from the parking, but you can carefully walk down to the water and enjoy the nice sight.
  • Fantastic view. What's best is that you can actually drive to it and park up close.
  • Simple but great waterfall.picnic tables available but I did not see a WC. May need the bushes. No crowds like the southern waterfalls.
  • Yet another beautiful Icelandic waterfall. They are all so worth it to visit. This one's particularly nice because it's not overly crowded.
  • Simple, quiet, and gorgeous. There's some great picnic table spots. Be sure to catch the plaque nearby commemorating a wonderful couple.
