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.

  • We love this waterfall, and also love the secret waterfall that you can visit down the nearby path. If it’s cold, get the hot chocolate with whipped cream!!

  • This was my favorite out of the many Waterfalls we saw in Iceland. That's mainly due to the reason of getting to walk behind such a big waterfall. Such a cool experience!

  • What a beautiful waterfall, anywhere you look you will get an incredible view. There is a large parking spot 2 mins from the waterfall. There is a small coffee shop that sells coffee, tea and a bite to eat. There are three waterfall in this area but the first one is the most majestic. You can hike behind the waterfall for some incredible views. I have gone in the morning and during sunset and it was mesmerising. Please wear waterproof clothing as you will get drenched if you go near the waterfall. Good hiking shoes are needed as the hiking path is bit muddy and definitely rocky. You can hike from rthe right side of the waterfall, walk behind and then walk down from the left side. On the left side there is a wooden staircase to come down. Have fun, these pictures will end up on your wall back home as it's so beautiful.
  • A must not miss stop for your tour! Do prepare to get wet as you walk around the waterfall.. I enjoyed walking thru the process very much! That feeling of getting so close to nature! There's also many parking space. Overall, this waterfall is gigantic and gorgeous
