Seljalandsfoss is another widely popular waterfall when travelling the South Coast. This is a narrow and tall specimen, with a drop of 63 meters, and it has the rare distinction in that you can actually walk behind it for a spectacular photographic angle.There are an almost endless number of waterfalls in Iceland. High and low, broad and narrow, this island has all the varieties. But, they all share a common feature; they are gorgeous in their own way.
Particularly for people who have never seen waterfalls or are not used to passing by one when taking a Sunday drive out of their city or town. Of course, some are thunderous and menacing while others are melodic and inviting. One of the most visited waterfalls, though, is Seljalandsfoss.
Seljalandsfoss is a picturesque and majestic waterfall. It is also unique and probably on the list of 10 most photographed natural wonders in Iceland. Not only is the waterfall captivating but you can also walk behind it on a walking trail. It is also quite popular to take photos from behind the water, which makes it unique. It is extraordinary experience being able to observe the surroundings from nature’s backstage.
Though the trails are wet and a bit slippery venturing behind Seljalandsfoss is by no means dangerous. You just have to be careful with your step and hiking shoes are preferred. During winter the whole surrounding and the trail behind the waterfall is very slippery and requires traction cleats. Once there you will get a bit wet (not soaked) from the drizzle and ever so light breeze from the falls. But, never mind, you will dry very quickly.
