Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall, Hella

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Hella
Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall waterfall represents a dramatic single river that drops 60 m (200 ft) over a cave cliff. Situated between Selfoss and Skógafoss, this picturesque spot features a cave entrance that allows you to go behind the waterfall into the cave for a 360-degree view of the fall. Be prepared to get damp, as spray from the water often shoots into the cave. Treat yourself to a drink or pastry at the snack truck that is often nearby. Smaller waterfalls exist just a bit farther down the path, so if you're up for exploring, look for those as well. Put Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall and other Hella attractions into our Hella tour itinerary planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Well worth the drive from Reykyavik although would recommend a 2 day excursion (by hire car is feasible instead of expensive guided tours) as there is so much to do in this area and also further east ...  more »
  • Worth a visit, if you come by. Waterfalls enough in Iceland!! Simple toilets and coffee stop. We could not walk behind because of the ice on the path. Pity, but very understandable

  • The path to the fall was closed. Here the most beautiful view is from behind od fall. So, it was just ok.  more »

  • Beautiful place, but you should wear a raincoat. Unfortunately you need to pay 750 for parking and awful toilets
  • Nice waterfall. The main attraction is to see it from the back. Take a raincoat with you.
  • Very nice waterfall that you can already see from the road if you’re coming from the direction of Reykjavik. Great thing is that you can walk behind the waterfall. Be prepared to get wet and it can be quite crowded.
  • Nice waterfall, that you can walk behind
  • Nature's wonder.
