This waterfall is one of the easiest to access in Iceland. It is visible from Route One along the way from Hofn to Egilsstadir, just as you enter the magnificent and rugged East Fjords area. The way that the stream has cut through the rock here is incredible.

This is the beauty of Iceland. You do not need to travel far to see amazing sights. That ease of sightseeing (and us photographers promoting Iceland landscapes through our photos) has resulted in a huge number of visitors travelling to the small island, especially in summer season. I hope that increase in numbers does not impact negatively on Iceland and that Icelandic people keep their door open to new visitors. I have fallen in love with the place and would dearly love to go there again in the future.

We missed this waterfall in 2015 despite the fact that it is so close to the main highway. This year we did not plan to stop there, however, once I spotted it, we decided to have a look around. It was a good decision as this is a lovely spot. The East Fjords pretty much being around this location and I found the waterfall quite fascinating.
