Best waterfall experience in Iceland. Take the time to walk 400 meters to the West and check out the smaller falls that drop into a box canyon.

A rather hazardous walk behind the waterfall - but worth it for the sheer spectacle. Also, the surroundings are lushly green, with lots of wild flowers (well, when we visited in mid-summer). Fortunately, the sun was out, giving a wonderful rainbow effect in the spray...More

This waterfall had really incredible scenery and has 360 degree access. You really get a sense of power when you walk into the cave. I recommend taking rain gear (maybe even pants) because there is a lot of mist in the air. There is a...More

Seljalandsfoss Falls are a picturesque 65m tall. They are a photographer's dream. The falls were used in the TV show The Amazing Race, where contestants had to walk behind the falls. At 75 years of age, I was determined to walk behind the falls too,...More

Lovely, lovely lovely. One word describes this amazing creation by a higher power. People who have been to Niagara falls in the USA, can appreciate this gigantic fall. Please go visit.

Yes! As most people would say - Get behind the falls. Wish and hope that there is sunlight on the day of your visit. You are going to get wet so carry plastic pants and plastic rainwear. Since we visited in Aug, it was fairly...More

Can't be specific because I've never visited in those months, but in general be aware that the weather in Iceland can change literally in a matter of minutes or from one side of a hill to the other. In April we had sunshine... More
