Getting drenched by walking behind the water full was a great fun way of feeling that you were part of this hob goblin part of the world. Its power is immense and its just so beautiful.

Amazing place. Breathtaking waterfall. There are lots of waterfalls in Iceland but this is definitely one of the most impressive ones. You can walk behind the waterfall, beware you will get soaked so wear appropriate waterproof clothes for that. Beautiful pictures point. Worth a visit and definitely worth walking around the whole site. Must do when in Iceland

We have seen other waterfalls in Iceland, but this has also a different character. It is very high and mysterious.

You can see this from miles away as you travel anti-clockwise on the A1 ring road. Once you get there its a busy spot but you get the chance to walk right behind the fall (Take your camera) and get the full on experience, there's a bit of a scramble to get out the other side if you want to...

Not only the waterfall is beautiful, its surrounding and the color is amazing too. I love the cave formed and moss green as the background of it. It is so fun to walk behind the waterfall, it feels like you can walk through it. It is very wet and slippery starting from the stairway all the way up, you must... More

waterfall is 65 m high and the glacier melted water comes form Eyafjallajoekull, the tvulcano which erupted in 2010 and made hundreds of thousands of flights grounded due to heave dust thrown in the atmosphere, you can climb behind the waterfall, but need hiking shoes, a little slippery.

This is a nice tall waterfall coming down off a sea cliff, There are a series of lesser waterfalls nearby, making for some lovely scenery. But the extra treat is the opportunity to take a walk behind the falls. As a person with bad balance on uneven ground I opted to sit on a bench while younger family members took... More

Just down the road from the larger Skogafoss falls. These are less powerful, but none the less beautiful for it. About 60m high and very photogenic with some great scenery to the sides. If you have a waterproof coat (probably as its Iceland) then you can go behind the falls and get wet. Well worth a visit.

Right off the side of the ring road. Amazingly beautiful. The sin is not in a good position for photography until the late afternoon, however. So keep that in mind if you are going for more than a cell phone photo. The main fall is right there, but most don't realize that there are three more falls just a bit... More
