What people are saying:

The largest waterfall in Europe. Follow Route 864 or 862 from south to north to arrive. This waterfall is mentioned earlier, in the first few minutes of the blockbuster "Prometheus", the waterfall where the alien fell. It's really a spectacular waterfall. The road conditions are very good when walking on 862. You can hear the sound of the waterfall as you walk. It is very worth seeing

    Sheer power

    You can really get close to this waterfall and witness its true power. There’s a nice walk along the canyon too to Selfoss waterfall.
