Really, an amazing experience to stand behind the waterfall. Bring your Gore-Tex. The power of the water hitting the lagoon!! The path behind the waterfall is well crafted (not too easy nor difficult) and well worth taking.

As of today, you are not permitted to walk behind the falls. This is a temporary measure, due to dangerous rock falls from the cliff above directly onto the path that goes behind the falls.

Can't be specific because I've never visited in those months, but in general be aware that the weather in Iceland can change literally in a matter of minutes or from one side of a hill to the other. In April we had sunshine... More
