One of the most beautiful and dramatic waterfalls on the south coast of Iceland is Seljalandsfoss. The origin of the waterfall is the melting water from the renowned glacier-capped Eyjafjallajokull volcano. It is one of the few waterfalls in Iceland where you can walk behind the waterfall. This 65-meter high waterfall, with its glacial water, is plunging into a deep pool.
We recommend visiting the waterfall during sunset or golden hour to get the best views of the waterfall. The waterfall is easily accessible from the Ring Road. There is a parking place where you can pay a nominal fee to park. Remember to wear waterproof gear while visiting, or you will get drenched.
Time Needed - 1-2 hours
Tip - You can also visit one of the hidden waterfalls of Iceland known as Gljúfrabúi, which is just a 10-minute walk from Seljalandsfoss.
