Amazing experience to walk behind a waterfall. It was cold and windy, we got super wet, but we would do it again in a heartbeat. Super cool and not to be missed when on your way to the South.

Can't be specific because I've never visited in those months, but in general be aware that the weather in Iceland can change literally in a matter of minutes or from one side of a hill to the other. In April we had sunshine... More

Hello, everyone! I have an overnight layover in Keflavik from 23:00 to 10:30. Is it possible to visit the falls overnight?

Response from Long N | Reviewed this property |
You can, it's only 1-2 hour drive from Keflavik. Depending on the weather you can drive at night and catch the sunrise at Seljalandsfoss.
