Great experience

This waterfalls was a great thing to experience. I wish we'd known to take waterproof clothing before going. We went behind the waterfall still and just dried off in the car.

Beautiful. During the day there are lots of buses and people but not unpleasant. I did not walk behind the waterfall it seemed too wet for the camera, others did. One in our party did slip and muddied her pants and was not hurt. They said it was worth the walk. Taking route 249 and verging on to route 248... More

I visited on a nice warm day and this place was lovely in the sun, although the flies were annoying! Overall though it was well worth putting up with them to walk in behind the waterfall and spend some time exploring the other waterfalls here.

One of my favorite waterfalls in Iceland. An easy drive from Reykjavik and where we spent the night after leaving the city - we were camping. There is a campground but the facilities are not the cleanest (the worst we experienced in Iceland) and you must pay for the shower. However, the view is excellent and there is another waterfall...

Seljalandsfoss is located right on the ring road. One can view them from a fair distance away and can drive practically right upto the falls about 200-250 meters away. The falls as such are not that large or powerful but give you the opportunity to walk right behind the falls and even around it by exiting from the other side,... More

One of the first Waterfalls i saw on my Iceland-Trip. The special thing about it - you can walk behind it! Cool. (Waterproof clothing recommended) Nearby is also a campsite.

This is a great waterfall with strong power and breeze; you need to be wearing a jacket if you plan to get close to it or do the tour behind it. Best if you have a water proof jacket and hiking shoes. The experience of doing the tour behind the waterfall is a great one. a Must do. Nice coffee... More

Amazing that you can go under waterfall. Disadvantage that you see this from the main road and there is no effect of surprise. There is very interesting Another waterfall less than 1 km by foot from there, I reccommend to check it also from every side.

This is a spectacular waterfall. I am sure it is even better on a sunny day - but we were there on a day when it rained, snowed, sleeted and then the sun came out on our day-long drive of the south coast. While I am sure the place gets much more crowded in the highest season - there were... More

Fantastic waterfall where you can walk around,.. Make sure to see the smaller "hidden" waterfalls a little more to the left, it is approx 5 minutes walking (towards the campsite) it is hidden in a kind of cave but FANTRASTIC to see.. Almost nobody visited that one when we were there... Don't know the name of the fall anymore.
