A hidden gem inside the cave. An enclosed waterfall. Beware... you will get wet. It can be a bit slippery. Worth the stop.

What a hidden delight! Walking into the canyon is like walking into a fantasy novel. It is best to go early in the morning or late at night before the crowds arrive.

We walked the approximately 500m from Seljalandsfoss to Glijurarfoss. It is an easy walk, but be careful it gets icy in the winter! It is difficult to get a good pic because the waterfall is hidden in the cleft of a mountain.

Right down the road from Slejalandsfoss, it's a hidden treasure. In order to see it properly, you'll need to step on rocks in a creek It's a little tricky and can be crowded, but worth it. Seeing the waterfall from within the gorge is breathe...More
