In Iceland you see a lot and different waterfalls but this one is really unique! A 360 degree view of the waterfall without high tech, that's what you get. Approaching from the right and leaving from the left of the waterfall... becoming a bit wet...!...More

How often do you get to walk behind a waterfall in one of the most beautiful places on Earth? Bring some waterproof clothes/shoes and do it - it's an experience you will cherish for a long time.

Very cool. You can walk behind the waterfall. Path is a bit cold, wet and slippery. But well worth doing. Free car parking. Easy access, can be seen, from the ring road.

This is the only waterfall you can physically experience first hand. Loved both the main and secret waterfall. Recommend 5/5!

Visible from the road, this impressive waterfalls has little sisters in this Disney setting. Green grass, little rivers, a house far away in the setting sun. There's a walk to do as well. Beautiful!

Driving along, I saw a waterfall and decided I needed to stop and check it out. Lots of tour buses in the parking lot, but a really cool place.

Easy access off the ring road and a short walk up the hill. Come ready to get wet, you can walk around and get behind the waterfall. Its an easy climb up and awesome to be back there. Beautiful from both front and back

Beautiful waterfall with a variety of views. Make sure you prepare to get wet. Full waterproof outfit and camera equipment is strongly suggested. You will likely get wet even if you do not decide to walk to the back of the falls. Wear foot gear...More

Easy waterfall to access and if you have waterproofs go round the back of it. Beautiful scenery around, quite peaceful place to walk around.

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

You can, it's only 1-2 hour drive from Keflavik. Depending on the weather you can drive at night and catch the sunrise at Seljalandsfoss.
