4.9/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
Seljalandsfoss 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. Plan your visit to Seljalandsfoss and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Hvolsvollur family vacation planner.
