In this video, we cover the 3rd part of our travel. We started from our small farm/guest house in a small village about an hours drive west of Selfoss. The day's itinerary was to cover the famous Gulfoss - a really wide rapid waterfall, and the Strokurr geyser - that periodically erupted, throwing out hot water from the earth below. it was the first time in our trip that it was pretty sunny, and we were lucky to witness the rainbow over Gulfoss - something that amazed us greatly.
Our last stop was Iceland’s one of the biggest and strongest waterfall, Skógafoss. There is a walking path close by to the top of the waterfall which rewards the visitor with an awe-inspiring view from the top of the mountain. While it seem a normal waterfall from far, its might and power is felt as you go near. The height of it made people standing at its foot look like dwarfs. There is a camp site near the waterfall. After, spending some time there, we were on our way to Reykjavik and dropped our Russian friends midway at their destination.
While en route, we made stops at these outdoor marvels. At Seljalandsfoss, there is a trail that leads you literally go behind these falls. Starting from the right, the trail winds around the back of the waterfall going underneath a cavern. Here, you can see and hear up close the continuing water. Then, you can head back out to the left to climb up a viewing area to check a different angle of Seljalandsfoss. Be careful, too, as these spots can be slippery.
