Seljalandsfoss, Iceland

The Seljalandsfoss-waterfall is located on the south-west coast of Iceland, easily to be seen from the main road (Ringroad 1). Due to the convenient location and the relative short distance from Reykjavik (about 110 km) the waterfall belongs to one of the most popular touristic attractions. The nearest village is Hvolsvöllur being at 22 kms distance. Driving from Hvolsvöllur the Seljalandsfoss can be seen from a far distance. A distinct feature of the waterfall is that it is possible to walk behind the falling water eanabling to watch the waterfall from all points of view. The spray from the Seljalandsfoss, produced by the falling water, spreads all around. The spray also reaches into the cave-like area behind the fall and treats every visitor with a refreshing drizzle. Also the sound of the falling water that plunges from the top into into the pit 62 m. lower, contributes to a very special experience. The Seljalandsfoss measures 62 m. high, coming from the Seljalandsá originating in the Hamragarða- and Seljaland moors.
