Seljalandsfoss is one of that waterfalls that almost everybody has seen somewhere at some point, be it online or in a book or calendar. This made us really excited to see it with our own eyes. It's a one hour drive from Selfoss and literally...More

You can see the falls from the road. There’s a little concession stand with pastries and hot drinks. Plenty of photo opportunities, just want to avoid times when there’s tons of tour buses! The walk up to behind the falls is mildly narrow and very...More

this is an amazing view as you approach the falls from the west. there are more falls then the main one you see. parking isn't free at this place, but still worth a visit.

If you are sure-footed (or have crampons) and rain gear, check it out! Nice little adventure. Allow plenty of time to enjoy this stop. There is also a small gift shop, snack bar, and restrooms.

A well maintained, lovely area with a massive waterfall and beautiful views. You can climb up either side to get behind the waterfall and see it from a different angle. The right hand side is much easier/safer, but the left hand side has less tourists...More

We went on a really windy day and it was amazing! We got absolutely soaked. But it was very astounding. Make sure to take a waterproof.

We were excited to stop and see these beautiful falls, even more so when we realized that despite being winter, the trail was still open and we could walk behind the falls. Our Costco Photo center has a pic of these falls from behind, hanging...More

I was just there in September and we didn't have to pay to park at all? Very short walk to get to the falls. We had less than 10min and were able to make the hike up behind the falls and back in less than that!
