Very beautiful waterfall, even though I wasn't able to walk behind it because the path was absolutely frozen and impossible to walk without falling at every step.

The two waterfalls that are visible from the parking lot are gorgeous, so of course, visit and take them in. But make sure you head over to the third waterfall all the way to the left... you can actually climb into the cave and look...More

Beautiful! It is easy to find however you have to pay for parking if you came by car and it seems only card payments are taken! There was a small toilet on the side which was not in a good state but better than nothing!...More

I was in awe when standing in front of this place. Beautiful. I think it's even prettier than the famous Skogafoss. 30 minute is enough for photo-taking. But if you really want to explore, it can take up to 2-3 hours to walk around and...More

Directly at the ring road. Beautiful surrounding, be sure to follow the path west of the fall. There you gonna find smaller falls, the last one is in a crevice where you can crawl in, if you don`t mind to get wet, it`s absolutely worth...More

Not sure what the weather will be in December. We visited in October, and there were already quite a few slippery places. So, I am not sure walking behind the waterfall is a good idea in December. On the other hand, if you... More

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.
