Oxararfoss Waterfall

Oxarafoss Waterfall is located in the heart of Pingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, just off Ring Road 1. The waterfall is part of the golden circle and is always busy so arriving just before sunrise is recommended.

Walking Here

From the top car park, the walk down to Oxararfoss falls is approximately only 15 minutes and passes through a stone walled valley known as the Path to Eyrie. Wooden decks then wind round to the waterfall and some veer up to a heightened viewpoint where you’ll find a café serving hot beverages.

The Falls

Upon arriving at the falls you’ll be stunned by their cascading beauty. The falls are relatively short in height yet the water pummels down at an impressive speed into the pool below and a good hour can be spent admiring this geological wonder. Make sure you bring a camera to capture the falls in all their glory.
