Skógafoss

View Photos

Keep your eyes peeled for rainbows!

Located at the foot of the impressive Eyjafjöll mountain range is Skógafoss, a magnificent 60-metre high waterfall where, according to legend, the first Viking settler in the area hid a treasure in the cave behind the cascade.

This is also one of Iceland‘s most photogenic landmarks; since the waterfall produces a lot of mist, rainbows are a common sight on sunny days. Nearby is the Skógar Folk Museum, which boasts an array of interesting artefacts including an original turf farm that shows how people lived hundreds of years ago.
