Care to journey behind a waterfall?

One of Iceland’s most visited waterfalls, after Gullfoss, Seljalandsfoss is situated along the Seljalandsá river where the waterway plummets 40 metres over a cliff face. Seljalandsfoss is unique among waterfalls, as the shape of the cliff over which it falls allows visitors to walk behind the chute via a footpath at the base of the falls.

You can get to the waterfall from the Seljaland farm along the Ring Road. A little further to the west there are several other falls, among them the fascinating Gljúfrabúi.

Always exercise caution when walking behind Seljalandsfoss. The path can be slippery, especially during the winter months.
