Iceland is full of waterfalls. There are so many waterfalls that you will need more than a day to get to all of them. Some are just worth a quick picture while others can hypnotise you with its thundering waters. If you visit Iceland, make sure you that these waterfalls are on your to-do list.
Seljalandsfoss is one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland. Most tourists stop here for a picture or two and it can get quite crowded during the day. Seljalandsfoss is popular for the fact that you can walk around the waterfall into a small cave. Just make sure you have waterproof clothing, as you can get soaked in seconds from the waterfall spray. In addition, you will have to pay if you want to use the parking. Luckily, there are free toilets available.
Skógafoss is one of Iceland’s largest waterfalls with a width of 15 meters and a height of 60 meters. There is free parking at the waterfall. Stairs along the waterfall take you to the top where you can walk further along the Skógá river.
The Gullfoss waterfall is massive. You can only stare in awe as thousands of liters of water gushes past you. The infrastructure is well laid out with footpaths all along one side of the waterfall. There are also information boards that tell you more about the history of the waterfall. Parking near the waterfall is free.
Svartifoss is hidden away from the main roads and you will have to walk a bit to get there. The walk is worth it, as most people do not visit the waterfall because of the effort to get there. The parking is also free. On your way to Svartifoss, you walk past another waterfall, Hundafoss, which is also worth a photo.
