Probably one of the most popular falls, this one actually has a walking path which takes you behind the falls, be prepared with a rain coat. This falls is also visible from the interstate heading south east and can't be missed. If you walk a...More

Wear rain gear and solid hiking boots and walk behind this immense falls. Great area. Small children may not want to go, as its slippery and Iceland isn't known for their efforts to protect stupid tourists from falling :) Adjacent to the falls is a...More

What a pretty place. Three pretty waterfalls to see and a cute shop with actually interesting items in it. Well worth the time.

Another beautiful not to be missed waterfall with impressive amount of water and power. Nice place to walk around and have a break from driving.

The unique thing about this waterfall is that you can walk one whole round under/behind the waterfall. But be warned you'll be soaked through if you venture there, so bring waterproof clothes. Close off route 1, so you can't miss it. We saw it a...More

The waterfall isn't as spectacular as the Skogafoss waterfall (about 25 minutes from here towards Vik). But it's a pretty cool experience you can walk behind this one. Yes, you get super wet, so bring rain gear. The path starting to the right if you...More

Iceland can seem like waterfall after waterfall. This one is the best and most interesting. The walk behind is most interesting and it has not been over commercialized yet. Great obvious stop on the south shore day trip.

We stopped at the Seljalandsfoss waterfall after going to Skogafoss (and getting wet) and we didn't even go exploring around it. The kids were wet and tired at this point so we only took a quick trick out to see it and back to the...More

Like everyone else here says, walk behind the waterfall- you will get wet, but it is awesome and must be done! Then walk down the short path down to the Gljufrabui/Gljufrafoss waterfall (which can be found under a separate tripadvisor listing).

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

Hello, everyone! I have an overnight layover in Keflavik from 23:00 to 10:30. Is it possible to visit the falls overnight?

Response from Long N | Reviewed this property |
You can, it's only 1-2 hour drive from Keflavik. Depending on the weather you can drive at night and catch the sunrise at Seljalandsfoss.
