  • Our plan for the day was to see the sights on the “golden circle” drive, and this was our second stop of the day, about a 10 min drive from our first stop was the Thingvellir National Park Visitor Cen...  more »
  • This waterfall is one of the main attractions of Thingvellir National Park. Perhaps I'm a bit spoiled however because I've seen literally hundreds of waterfalls in Thailand since I live there and many...  more »
  • Attractions: Oxararfos Address: Thingveir National Park, Thingvellir, Iceland Opening times: 24 hours Admission: No Transport: 1, self-drive, enter the address above. Reason for recommendation: 1, Waterfalls in Singh Vidli National Park Special Recommended: Hiking Waterfalls are located in Singh Vidli National Park. It's about 20 minutes from the starting point to the waterfall walkway. Through a broken valley, two or three sheep will be seen sleeping on grass. Waterfall is not big, but can sit next to the walkway to rest to see the river flow ingress in the place of a vast green - take pictures of suggestions: 1, can wear bright clothes. ⚠️TIPS: 1, pay attention to keep warm ♂️ personal feeling: Singh Vidley National Park is the right to swim. Iceland in summer is different from winter Iceland, green everywhere!

  • Gorgeous waterfall with several spots to take photographs of it if you're.. adventurous... 😂 Easy 1/5 difficulty hike to get there that takes max 15-20 minutes in my opinion. Touristy but still a nice Foss! 😍
  • Really pretty waterfall in an area with fascinating historical significance. The park is easy to drive to. Parking is paid, but with the app it’s cheap and super easy. There is a boardwalk to the waterfall which makes access a breeze. And getting to witness the continental divide in person is absolutely incredible. Definitely worth the trip here!
  • Another beautiful waterfall in Iceland, this is a place to not lose. The landscape around Öxarárfoss makes this waterfall even more of an experience. With the vibrant colors of moss and plants on the accompanying rocks, you'll find yourself in the middle of a picturesque backdrop. Easy to walk to from the parking lot with minimal energy with using the path that's already there.
  • I really like this waterfall, it is not the biggest or most impressive but it is charming in its own way. Easy parking and close to the road. You have the walking of the dead man next to it. Must see it.
  • they said that Iceland is blessed with many waterfalls. either you’re visiting during the summer or the winter the view is fascinating.
