Going Behind the Water at Iceland’s Seljalandsfoss

In the south of Iceland near the western base of the glacier Eyjafjallajökull, the Seljalandsá river spills over a 60-meter (197-foot) cliffside to a placid pool below.
The waterfall, Seljalandsfoss, stands as one of Iceland’s most photogenic natural attractions. The jutting angle of the cliff allows visitors to explore behind the veil of water, revealing a waterfall that can be captured from nearly every angle. Whether camping at the falls’ base in summer or braving thick ice and snow during the winter, the sight of the falls throughout Iceland’s dramatic seasons has proven a longtime attraction for local and visiting Instagrammers alike.
