Another waterfall not to miss. Take a rain coat otherwise you'll get wet. Take a walk behind the water curtain - awesome. 30 minutes should be enough. We had a busy day with 8 landmarks but we managed to do them all even if was...More

We had spent a week exploring and hiking waterfalls in Iceland. This was actually our last stop. The packed parking lot was indicative of the lines waiting to get soaked walking behind the falls. Viewing it from the parking lot was just fine and worth...More

If you are in the south of island you need to visit the Seljalandsfloss, a nice waterfall in a very nice area. We went in the evening; you need to pass a camping ground thats why I wouldnt go too late.

This is a must see water fall on the ring road. Not only is it a picturesque waterfall, but you can walk behind it. The path isn’t too bad, but you will get wet. There is a little gift shop with food available. And free...More

Walked behind the falls! Waterproof gear is a must. There is also a waterfall inside a cave just follow the path to the campsite.

Another beautiful waterfall in Iceland and you get to walk behind this one. Wear a waterproof jacket and pants as you will get wet from the close proximity to the falls.

The view was spectacular, especially when we go behind the fall! Do bring your raincoat or your Waterproof jacket as I could guarantee you would become all wet after going behind the fall!

There are not too many places that I am aware of that you can actually walk behind the waterfall and out the other side. Definitely enjoyable! Great photo opportunities all around. We had come prepared with our rain gear outfits on (head to toe) and...More

You can walk behind this waterfall unlike many others in Iceland, and it is fun to get the full experience. The footing was secure along the path, not a hard walk. Take rain gear to avoid getting wet from the spray though.
