Skógafoss; Icelands most beautiful waterfall

My sister and I took a tour bus and these falls were one of easiest falls to access being just off the highway. We were surprised at how close we were able to get to the base of the waterfall. We could feel the mist from the falls on our face. We were also surprised to see a campground at the base of the falls. Mostly it was hikers gathering to leave in the morning. They climb the stairway to the top of the falls early in the morning and begin their hike. They were able to view more waterfalls as well as the Atlantic Ocean, .
