Walk behind a gorgeous waterfall

Seljalandsfoss waterfall is a supremely graceful waterfall which drops around 60 meters into the otherwise tranquil pool below.

Seljalandsfoss waterfall

You should be prepared to get a little wet because Seljalandsfoss is one of the very rare waterfalls, anywhere in the world, where it is possible to walk behind the narrow, cascading falls. Following the pathway from the base of the cliff will take you behind the vigorously tumbling waterfall. We recommend you take your time and make the most of an opportunity to take some totally unique photographs.

Seljalandsfoss is on the Seljalands River which flows all the way down from the famous volcano, Eyjafjallajökull!
