If you searched for pictures of Iceland on the internet, you have found this iconic location. This is one of the easiest accessible locations in Iceland. The access is 24/7 all year long. The only think to have in mind, is the small parking lot at the main road. There is only a 200m walk from the parking lot to the main location where you can get the waterfall and the mountain in your frame.
