Iceland Hengifoss Waterfall

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
After the steep ascent you get rewarded with a beautiful view towards Hengifoss waterfall in East Iceland. The further, now flat path was closed due to the danger of falling rocks.

Photography Tips

If you want a closer photo, a tele-lens is recommended because the path towards the waterfall might be closed and getting nearby is therefore not possible and forbidden.

That's such a beautiful scene and I really like that you need to climb up there. Do you know the name of the waterfall? Because that would be much more helpful as a title than the current very generic one nobody would search for. Did you pass Litlanessfoss for this climb by the way?

Hello Manuel, thank you for your compliment. That's how I understood it ;-) Thank you for mentioning the "missing" information. It is about the "Hengifoss", I only noted this in the keywords, not in the actual text. When going up to "Hengifoss" you normally (unless you have climbing equipment ;-)))) ) pass the waterfall "Litlanessfoss". OK? Greetings Rodolphe

Awesome, I just updated the title + text a bit just to make it easier to find and understand what the spot is about. I wish I knew about it when I was there in 2015... Would have loved a nice hike in the eastern part of Iceland.
