You’ve seen this waterfall before. It’s every bit worth the hype. It’s every bit worth all the words used to describe it. Majestic, breathtaking, CROWDED. So go early.
I camped at Skogar the night before after completing the Laugavegur and Fimmvorduhals. I didn’t even think I would get to see it other than through the windows of the bus. Since this is one of the stops on the way back to Reykjavik, don’t take a nap and miss out. The bus driver told us we got a 15 minute break. I grabbed my gopro and ran as fast as I could. I was beyond excited.
