Walking behind Seljalandsfoss

Seljalandsfoss waterfall is one of the most beautiful in South Iceland

After two hours of driving from Reykjavik on Route 1, you will find one of the most beautiful waterfalls in south Iceland, Seljalandsfoss. The waterfall is close to the main road, so it will be easy to find.

Near the waterfall is a parking lot where you can park your car for a small fee. Be careful during the wintertime; the path behind the waterfall is usually closed because of safety reasons. Do not adventure there, as it can be hazardous.

The waterfall is a part of the river Seljalandsá that originates underneath the glacier Eyjafjallajökull-the, the famous volcano that erupted in 2010 and blocked the airports in Europe. The waterfall is 60 m (200 feet) high and falls from a cliff that once was the country’s coastline.

This waterfall has its beauty, mainly because the cliffs behind the fall were carved through time, and now there is a path behind it.

Plan a trip to Seljalandsfoss waterfall and book a tour on the South Coast of Iceland.
