Seljalandsfoss Kvernufoss Waterfall

Seljalandsfoss waterfall will likely be one of the first things you hear about Iceland. When visiting 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 small, cascading falls. 

Following the pathway from the base of the cliff will take you behind the waterfall. Take your time and make the most of an opportunity to take some totally unique photographs.

In wintertime time the path is closed when it gets too slippery and dangerous to walk behind the waterfall. 

Seljalandsfoss is only about 120 kilometers away from Reykjavík. You can drive east from Reykjavik to get there, following Road 1, which will eventually lead you to the Waterfall of Seljalandsfoss. It's a2-hour drive from Reykjavik and from the road you can see the waterfall. You will find the waterfall access from the Seljaland farm along the Ring Road, the main highway in Iceland.
