We were there in June. We spent a good 20 minutes here taking pictures, and there's a fine mist that will require you to wipe your camera lens, but it's well worth it. This waterfall is a short and scenic walk from Seljalandsfoss (also amazing),...More

So in between Reykjavik and Vic there are a number of water falls as the mountains drop off to the sea. One of these I saw on a great site called atlas obscura (highly recommend by the way) that i wanted to check out. Gljufrafoss...More

500m walk from Seljalandsfoss, hidden in the small canyon, this stunning waterfall humbly flows allowing moss to grow on all surrounding rocky walls. It doesn't look like it, but you can go directly under the waterfall when carefuly jumping from one rock to another. Atmosphere...More

Gljufrafoss is 200 meters away from the beautiful Seljalandsfoss and can easily be missed if you do not walk to the mouth of the small pass between two big rocks. There is a 3 meters wide passage where you should step on the stones and...More

This is crowded and popular, but worth the stop. The main one, you can walk behind. Bring your rain gear! The farthest one can be seen up close by going into the rocks, stepping on a stone walkway and getting very close. We didn't do...More

This hidden waterfall is located just 10 minutes walk from the main attraction of Seljalandsfoss. Its located in the mountains. But to be able to access the waterfall you will need proper clothes that can get wet as the water rushes down the mountain and...More

Many tourists miss it altogether even though its only about 10 mins walk from Seljalandsfoss. It is such a hidden gem, you need to wear proper raincoat and prepare to get wet. Once you get through the narrow cliffs it feels like you have the...More

Pass Seljalandfoss a little ways to find this hidden beaut! Just be warned: you will be soaked and cold w/o the proper gear! This was one of my favorite falls to visit due to its splendor and isolation.

This waterfall is only a short walk from the immensly popular Seljalandsfoss, but the majority of the tourist hordes never make it there. It is very special in its own right because it is of the charming view through the crack in the surrounding cliffs....More
