Beautiful waterfall with remarkable nature and surroundings. You should definitely put it on your list for visiting Iceland and be sure to check everything out before you leave! more »
We made it a point to stop at every waterfall we passed and take some photos. This one stands out as a real beauty. more »
Yes, it will feel like there are a lot of people there, even in late September, but you'll be surprised at how the people barely even show up in your photos, and the waterfall is more than worth a visit. The path to get behind is a bit tricky to traverse--luckily there's a rope to pull yourself up with at a particularly rough spot, but it's also wet and muddy there so you'll get a little dirty.
Nice waterfall where you can walk behind the waterfall! Great pictures guaranteed! Make sure to come early before all the touring buses and enjoy this amazing place in all peace. I recommend taking the first parking lot you see when leaving the main road. This parking lot is for free!
