We were there first thing in the morning at 9 and got there after 2 minutes. We got there by taxi. They're very cheap here. The mobile voucher was not enough but I sent it via email over the wifi and it was printed out there. The helicopter ride was breathtaking. I also thought it was much better than the boat tour. 10 minutes is short but enough in my opinion.

Beautiful experience, we went as a family with two teenagers and we liked everything! Excellent transportation, the Guide, the tour, the places to have lunch and the finishing touch is the boat ride.

Well, breathtaking views. Nordic logistics a bit chaos, they don't notify you of the pick-up times, you have to be on top of them

Well organized, the pick-up service had to be booked on site and at € 30 it was quite expensive compared to the taxi prices there.

It's just a unique experience. One can only recommend seeing these waterfalls from above.
