This waterfall is massive, and beautiful. Definitely worth the stop. There are stairs to get you behind the falls. It's very wet, but you have to go behind it! I also recommend stopping at Gljúfrabúi waterfall which is very nearby.

Terrific waterfall with a path behind it for a wet walk-through .... well worth it for the view! The smaller waterfalls to the left side are less interesting but still worth a walk to see. And the coffee stall out front is good value afterwards...More

Rent a car and drive toward this amazing waterfall and take in the 360' breathtaking views! Be careful of tourists that suddenly stop on the sides of the roads to take pictures.

What a unique site to see. Be sure to bring your rain gear if you are going to hike the waterfall. It offers great views from far. But getting closer, you have the opportunity to hike to and behind the waterfall. But you will get...More

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.
