Skogafoss, Skogar

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Skogar
One of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, Skogafoss sits along the cliffs of the country's former southern coastline. The coast has receded about 5 km (3.1 mi) toward the sea, so these falls now mark the boundary between the lowlands and the highlands. On sunny days, you can often see a single or double rainbow above the falls due to the huge volume of mist. If you don't mind getting wet, you can walk pretty close to the waterfall and even follow a rocky path behind the wall of water. Climb up to the top for a different view of the falls and the surrounding landscape. Before you head to Skogar, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Skogar trip planner , to make sure you see all that Skogar has to offer, including Skogafoss.

  • Truly a show! We also found the rainbow in front of the waterfall and it's majestic. It is reached in 5 minutes from the parking lot, which is free (which is not discounted)... you can also climb a staircase that leads you to see it from above...

  • Beautiful waterfall. Saw two rainbows over the falls, which made for great photos. Well worth the drive to see the sight!  more »
