Seljalndsfoss is towering and easily accessible from the main road, so it is popular with tourists. There were signs about a fee to park, so we didn't say long or walk out to the waterfall. Just a quick 'wow' and a quick photo and back...More

No matter how prepared you think you are from looking at the photos, nothing prepares you for just how big and amazing Iceland really is. This is the waterfall I was most excited to see and it did not disappoint. The walk behind it is...More

Visited Seljalandsfoss today and it is beautiful. The part that makes this place so unique is that there is a trail to walk behind the falls. It gets cool and is wet with the mist, but it is worth it. The trail is damp so...More

The Seljalandsfoss waterfall is as famous a visitor venue as it can get. Already a UNESCO site, this wonderful waterfall had been featured in The Amazing Race as well as a Justin Bieber music video. A good tip is to visit at sunrise or sunset...More

Wonderful waterfall. The best part is going behind and taking some SLO mo shots as the water falls. It's epic. Get there early (I recommend camping right next door. If you aren't camping in Iceland you aren't doing it right) and get up early or...More

In a country will so many falls, each one stands out for something. This one is next to highway 1. Easy parking, next to the falls, and a three more bonus falls.
