A short walk from the parking lot for Skogafoss, you'll find this beautiful waterfall behind a small opening in the rock wall. To really appreciate this waterfall, you absolutely need to walk into the opening. A short few hops on some smooth rocks and you're...More

Easy to get to, easy to park, easy walk, overall it was a bonus photo shoot with very little planing required.

This was absolutely one of my favourites; to see the waterfall you need to go inside a cave. You might get a little wet, but hey, that's Iceland anyway! And it's really worth it!

Loved every part of this waterfall, you can actually walk right in the canyon and take pictures. Loved it.

Gljúfrabúi Waterfall is probably overlooked because one, its neighbour is the ever popular Seljalandsfoss, and two, it's tucked beneath cliffs. The entrance is cave-like and requires that you either balance your way across stones or simply walk through the river (ankle deep) into the cavernous...More

You can see this waterfall through the mountainside but to really see it up close you need to walk through the cave on rocks in a river to get to land inside. I would only really recommend doing this if you have other people going...More

Someone has thoughtfully placed fairly stable stones at close intervals along the stream which are either just above or just below the level of the water. If you are able to balance along them, using the cliff wall on one side if necessary, and squeeze...More

I received a recommendation to make the further walk from Seljalandsfoss to see Gljufrabui, and then the Rick Steves’ book said it wasn’t totally worth it so we almost skipped it. And skipping it would have been a mistake, this was amazing. We had waterproof...More

After reading the reviews, I thought there was no way we could cross the river without rain boots. Thankfully, the water level was low and rocks were strategically placed to help us walk to this waterfall. To get here, follow the trail that runs north...More

This is a water fall next to the camp grounds next to Seljalandsfoss. It is hidden back in a cut in the mountainside. You can sort of see it, but you need to go back in the cut to really see it. Very beautiful inside.

Depends if you want to keep him dry or not. The distance between stepping stones is probably farther than he can easily manage. The water, however, is not deep...5 or 6 inches.
