The weather can be unpredictable in Iceland so it's always a good idea to come prepared with appropriate clothing, which usually means, warm, waterproof clothes worn in layers. The weather wasn't great on the day that I was here, so my waterproof jacket and layers of clothing came in handy, but I wasn't as prepared for the rain when it came to photography and as a result, a lot of the photos that you'll see on this page are "artistically enhanced", or to be more truthful, just plain wet smudged by the rain!. Don't forget to guard you lens and have something to keep your lenses dry. Bring warm clothes and watch your step as you make your way down the path toward the falls as you'll get your shoes pretty muddy if you're not careful.
If you go to Gullfoss during certain times of the year, you should exercise care when walking, because some of the paths may be iced up from leftover snow. The combination of leftover snow and constant spray from the fall can create an iced up pathway. Having snow shoes or hiking boots should be adequate.
