Located on the southern coast, this is the first waterfall that we visited in Iceland! A highlight of this waterfall is that you can actually walk behind it, which is such an amazing feeling!

Skogafoss

Just a 20 minute drive from Seljalandsfoss, this massive waterfall is nearly 200 feet high! There is also a path that climbs up the side that allows you to view it from the summit.

Gulfoss

Gullfoss is one of the main stops on the Golden Circle tour, and a beautiful and humbling waterfall to see. Its raging waters drop down into a deep gorge below.

Kirkjufellfoss

Located up north, there are tiny waterfalls located near the famous Kirkjufell mountain. It’s not much of a sight in itself, but beautiful with Kirkjufell as your background!

While we didn’t get a chance to see Godafoss, it’s one of the most famous waterfalls in the north, along with Iceland as a whole. If I ever travel up to Northern Iceland, this is a guaranteed sight to see.

Svartifoss

Another one we didn’t see, but it’s regarded as one of the top waterfalls in Iceland – mainly due to its surrounding basalt columns. It’s located in Vatnajokull National Park in the southern region.
