Skogafoss, Skogar

(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
One of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, Skogafoss sits along the cliffs of the country's former southern coastline. The coast has receded about 5 km (3.1 mi) toward the sea, so these falls now mark the boundary between the lowlands and the highlands. On sunny days, you can often see a single or double rainbow above the falls due to the huge volume of mist. If you don't mind getting wet, you can walk pretty close to the waterfall and even follow a rocky path behind the wall of water. Climb up to the top for a different view of the falls and the surrounding landscape. A visit to Skogafoss represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Skogar trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • A majestic waterfall in nature. The best-known of Iceland but the other waterfalls are also worth visiting

  • We stopped 15 minutes only and that was enough to realize how impressive and beautiful was it!! If you get close to the waterfall itself you feel the cold breeze get some coat even in summer.  more »
  • There are many beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, but this is one not to be missed! We were lucky to get there as the sun was out and the rainbow generated by the mist from the waterfall was stunning. G...  more »
