An easy to moderate, beautiful hike, to the highest waterfall of Iceland.

We pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavik and continue towards Hvalfjördur (e.Whale Fjord) where you will be rewarded with unforgettable landscapes and unique panoramic views. We will head to Botnsdalur, a valley which hides a real gem of nature and the 198 m.

We will be crossing a small cave where on the other side you will see: a glimpse of paradise, a clear and joyous stream running among moss and tall grass. Enjoy a breath of fresh air as you will be spending your day in the outdoors hiking in beautiful surroundings.
