When driving along the Ring Road in Iceland, it's astounding how many of the country's beautiful waterfalls you can see right from the road. One of my favourites is undoubtedly Seljalandsfoss.
This is an adventure that can be as short or as long as you’d like. We took the time to explore around the entire waterfall and made the most of our visit. As you follow the path along the side of the waterfall, you’ll definitely get an icy shower so be sure to bring a waterproof jacket and protection for your camera gear. Exercise extreme caution when making your way to the rear of the waterfall because snow and ice was abundant on the path. Microspikes were very helpful for keeping traction in some of the more treacherous areas.
Walking behind Seljalandsfoss was such a unique experience. You really get a great sense of the power of the falls and can truly appreciate the scale of the 60 meter plummet in a way that you can't from the viewing area in front of the falls.
Standing behind that enormous curtain of water and peering out at the world was an experience I'd recommend to anyone.
