Nice break for those leaving East Iceland’s most charming town, Seydisfjordur, to take a 45 minute hike to and from these falls, which you can pass behind. I’d imagine on a sunny day you can get some nice rainbow photos here. In any case, the...More

We stopped on the way to Seydisfjordur. It is just two minutes walk from the main road going down to the village. We have seen quite a strong stream. Recommended stop on the way.

Nice waterfall with a good flow, and a view of the mountains behind. There are also views down the hill to the fjord. Easy stop just outside town.

This is right off the road as you head in between the two towns. There is a small parking area & no facilities. The path to the falls is short. You can also hike up a small but steep path to view the falls from...More

A ten minute stop in the pullout is plenty for walking to the falls. If you’ve been driving the Ring Road and seen others, it won’t be so impressive but it’s pretty nonetheless.

You can see this waterfall while driving down to Seydisfjördur from a mountain. It's beautiful and if you like, you can walk near to it. It's not a long walk.

This beautiful waterfall can easily be missed as you drive towards Seydisfyördur. A small area to pull over serves as your base for pictures or, if weather allows, to hike closer to the waterfall. Take time to look and explore!

The winding road down to Seydisfjordur is already enough reason to come this way, and while you’re here this is a nice place to stop and take a few photos.

We were travelling from Egilsstadir to Seydisfjdour and you drive right past this convenient parking area and a 1 minute walk to the falls. You might as well stop and stretch the legs. There are many larger falls in Iceland but they all have their...More
