Seljalandsfoss

(Seljlandsáfoss)

One of the finest and highest waterfalls in Iceland. Easy to get to and is right next to the ring road. It is I think the most beautiful waterfalls to photograph. Flower Fields, different positions from where you can see the waterfall you can walk behind. The waterfall is fed by a glacier, so in summertime there is enough water to fed the waterfall.

Seljalandsfoss is a 65m high waterfall which cascades over ancient sea cliffs into a pool below. The pool is called Kerið or sometimes Fossker. It is possible to walk around behind the falls and come out the other side – the only one of its kind in Iceland. At night and in winter, the falls are illuminated.

A little further you will find even more waterfalls, also worth a visit. At a 10 min walk you will find the Gljúfurárfoss or Gljufrabui.
