This waterfall is definitely not the highest but it is pretty wide and therefore makes a strong impression. Do not pass it without visiting because Urriðafoss is worth it. The place is not so touristic, which makes it attractive.

A wide and beautiful waterfall

What we recommend you to do is to stay in one of the local houses near the waterfall. We did it and we could see a pasture with beautiful horses from our windows. You can find an affordable house at Airbnb.
