Trip Planner: Europe / Iceland / South Region / Hella / Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall
Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall waterfall represents a dramatic single river that drops 60 m (200 ft) over a cave cliff. Situated between Selfoss and Skógafoss, this picturesque spot features a cave entrance that allows you to go behind the waterfall into the cave for a 360-degree view of the fall. Be prepared to get damp, as spray from the water often shoots into the cave. Treat yourself to a drink or pastry at the snack truck that is often nearby. Smaller waterfalls exist just a bit farther down the path, so if you're up for exploring, look for those as well.

Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall reviews
Visited as part of a tour. Stunning waterfall. Can get wet walking behind also uneven surface so be careful. Must see stop on the south coast.

Definitely worth seeing. Be prepared for a short walk to get close to the falls but it’s awesome! Plenty of opportunity to get a great pic without people in it.

Arguably one of the most glorious of Iceland’s waterfalls! Not only is it tall, powerful, and picturesque, you can also walk behind it. The views are amazing from so many vantage points, and walking up to it, and around it, is an adventure. Parking is relatively close, but the entire area around the waterfall is wet and can be slippery. Hiking shoes or something with traction is ideal. Also, if you want to get close, try and wear water proof or quick drying clothes. You will not only get wet, but you could get soaked, especially on windy days. Near the parking lot is a water closet, a place to get coffee, and a couple of shops. This place can get very crowded as it is a main attraction in Iceland. Plan on spending some time here if you want to walk around it and get some cool shots. There is also another very cool waterfall down a footpath, which is even more adventurous. For that one you need to walk in a steam and then get completely soaked by the spray once you are within the cliff walls of the falls. This is definitely a place to see!
Loved this waterfall!! So beautiful! Lots of people all the time & $7 for parking. Trail to see a couple other falls. You should have water resistant clothing and footwear.
