Gullfoss Footpath Closed Tomorrow Due to Icy Conditions

Owing to ongoing frost by the waterfall Gullfoss in Southwest Iceland, rangers from the Environment Agency of Iceland have taken measures to make footpaths in the area safer. Not all precautions have proven effective, however; incessant spray has rendered the gravel footpath leading to the waterfall extremely slippery. To ensure the safety of visitors, the footpath will be closed tomorrow (23rd of October).

Other footpaths in the area have been sanded and will remain open. The frost is expected to continue throughout the week. The footpath will open again later this fall if weather conditions improve.

Rangers have also put up signs recommending the use of crampons by Gullfoss and Geysir.
