Gulfoss - the rainbows that form there caught our eyes before the waterfall made its way. It is an extraordinary waterfall which is often compared to the Niagara Falls. Our lunch session happened just there in front of the waterfall, around 5pm since we lost track of time while exploring the same. We soon drove off after that, and were on our way to the camp site when at around 11pm in the night, while it was still sunlit we chanced upon Seljalandsfoss, the waterfall which is famous since people can go behind it and experience the setting sun.People generally chose the spot to propose to their loved ones; would be spouses. One such couple caught me off guard when they asked me to photoshoot for them while they were at it with a waterproof ring in hand!It’s again one of the prime waterfalls of Iceland which should not be missed, in all it's glory its just amazing.Our day soon ended, when we reached our campsite at Vik, where post setting up our camp we had some chat sessions with an Irish guy who had travelled 48 countries and apparently had caught malaria while in India. Post quite some knowledge sharing there, we were finally tired enough to sleep.
Equally if not more inspiring, Skógafoss is one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls. You can get quite close to the waterfall and the spray coming off is amazing to see and feel. Just remember, as you get towards the mist, to protect your camera lens! As you are able to walk along the base of the waterfalls, you can also get to different levels for more than one side view. On the east side of Skógafoss, there is a long staircase in which you make the climb to get all the way to the top, or stop at side paths along the way that lead to lookout points. I tried to go up the entire staircase to reach the pinnacle, but due to having limited time — and me needing a lot more of time to get up and back down in one piece — I decided to go along one of the side trails and then back down to the base instead.
