Located in South Iceland, the astounding Seljalandsfoss waterfall measures in at a whopping 60 meters (195 feet) high. If you’re looking to visit one of Iceland’s most iconic natural sights, visiting Seljalandsfoss is an absolute must-do.
Seljalandsfoss is a breathtaking glacial waterfall on the Þórsmerkurvegur road just off of Iceland’s south coast. The volcano that it borders is a site of great interest for its world-changing effects after it last erupted in 2010!
The Seljalandsá river, which the waterfalls sits on, is fed mainly by the glacier Eyjafjallajökull. You’ll notice that it dramatically tumbles over the edge of a sheer cliff face. This is undeniably one of the most picturesque and jaw-dropping waterfalls in Iceland.
This stunning and pristine natural waterfall is something quite spectacular to behold. Plus, the hollowed out shape of the cliff means that you can even walk behind the waterfall. Just follow the marked paths around the site.
With all of its majesty, it’s no wonder that Seljalandsfoss has featured in popular culture. The waterfall was used as a waypoint during season 6 of The Amazing Race, starred in season 3 of Star Trek, and even popped up in Justin Bieber’s music video for the song “I’ll Show You”.
