Photograph of the week: Seljalandsfoss, Iceland

Arguably one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland (and with good reason!), Seljalandsfoss has a 60 metre drop over a cliff that once formed Iceland’s coastline. The cliff is eroded in such a way that you can actually walk behind the waterfall and admire it from all angles. You can reach it from the Route 1 ring road, between Selfoss and Skógafoss. Visit during the Summer months (the path around the back of the falls in closed during the Winter) and you’ll also see lots of wild flowers in boom.

    There are a great many videos on youtube for Seljalandsfoss. Anyone interested could spend a long while browsing these and getting ideas for their own visit

  2. I went there and I confirm that it is a very nice waterfall (and you can go behind it)…
    But there is often a lot of people (tourists, I mean) there.

    We went in the winter and it was beautiful then as well. Not quite frozen but very heavily iced! Still lots of people there though!
