Seljalandsfoss, South Region

4.8
Seljalandsfoss waterfall represents a dramatic single river that drops 60 m (200 ft) over a cave cliff. Situated between Selfoss and Skógafoss, this picturesque spot features a cave entrance that allows you to go behind the waterfall into the cave for a 360-degree view of the fall. Be prepared to get damp, as spray from the water often shoots into the cave. Treat yourself to a drink or pastry at the snack truck that is often nearby. Smaller waterfalls exist just a bit farther down the path, so if you're up for exploring, look for those as well. Put Seljalandsfoss and other South Region attractions into our South Region tour itinerary planner , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • So close to a large waterfall, you can around into it to find out, the water around around in four weeks, it is best to wear raincoats, winter should be very cold, good we are summer!
