Ægisíðufoss Waterfall is waterfall near town Hella in southern Iceland.
There are two ways, how you can get to Ægisíðufoss waterfall. The easy way is from road 25. If you drive from Selfoss (west direction), you have to turn right before town Hella to road 25. Then you continue 2,5 km until you will get to the sign with the mark and name of waterfall. Then you turn left on a gravel road and continue few hundred meters to parking lot, which is next to the waterfall.
In case, you want to see waterfall from second side (recommended), you have to drive to Hella and then take a turn left (if you are driving on road 1 from west), just after hotel Stracta. Then you continue in the end of the road and then turn right and get to a small parking lot with bench.
Parking and sightseeing Ægisíðufoss are not paid, so you can visit it for free.
You will find small parking lots for 5 – 10 cars on both sides of Ægisíðufoss waterfall. This waterfall is not very famous, so there is usually not so many people, so you should always find a place to park your car.
If you want a quiet and unpopulated waterfall to enjoy this is a great option right off of the main highway.
Beautiful waterfall, not popular at all, so you’ll be able to spend some time there totally alone. There also is a bench near waterside, so you can just seat and enjoy waterfall sounds. Amazing feelings!
Yes not the most popular waterfall in Iceland but we really enjoyed this one – zero tourists and we had the view all to ourselves.
Amazing it’s right next to the parking
This waterfall is in the southern portion of the island, east of Reykjavík and west of other waterfalls, including the amazing Seljalandsfoss. As you’re driving along the Ring Road, turn onto Route 25 heading south. Drive for about 2 miles along Route 25. You’ll see a sign on your left for the “road” to the falls.
Turn left onto this unpaved road, drive the few hundred feet to the end, where there’s a parking area. From the parking area, follow the sounds to the river. You’re only a few hundred feet from the falls, and there are a few different easy-to-identify trails leading down to the shore of the river.
