About Seljalandfoss Waterfall

This waterfall is about 60 m high and it is relatively easy to walk all the way around it. The mud behind it is rather slippery.

In January 1967, the daily precipitation was measured 101 millimetres at Skogar and all rivers in the area were flooded. The flood broke a part of the brink of the waterfall and left it a little less beautiful than before. The waterfall is very prominent from the main road.

Gljufurarfoss is among the most renowned waterfalls of Iceland only few km. from Seljalandsfoss.
