  • The Gljúfrafoss tumbled into a cave that is accessible via a short hike. Unique waterfall in southern Iceland. This along with Seljalandsfoss were among our favorites. 
  • Seljalandsfoss is beautiful. While we were there, the sun peeked out and created a rainbow right in front for a great photo. Lots of people to walk around and wait behind though. After you do the walk...  read more »

  • An amazing waterfall. Looks like a slot canyon. You can get right up next to it and makes for epic photos
  • Most tourists don't venture don't to this waterfall, which is just 100 meters past Seljalandfoss. I definitely recommend going through the opening in the rock and into the waterfall itself. You'll get a bit wet, but it is DEFINITELY worth. YOLO, amirite?
  • Amazing hidden waterfall. Make sure to not miss it when visiting Seljalandsfoss. You can walk through the mountain entrance and get basically inside the waterfall. Be careful as the spray from the waterfall will get you soaked instantly.
  • This waterfall is spectacular. Hidden behind the rock you have to walk up the creek to really see the waterfall. You'll get a little wet but it's worth it to see the falls.
  • The best waterfall I've seen on the island (so far). You can visit it from below and get a tad wet, climb half way up, or walk the trail all the way to the top. Great photos from all 3 spots!
