Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall, Hella

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Hella
Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall 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.

  • Well worth the drive from Reykyavik although would recommend a 2 day excursion (by hire car is feasible instead of expensive guided tours) as there is so much to do in this area and also further east ...  more »
  • Worth a visit, if you come by. Waterfalls enough in Iceland!! Simple toilets and coffee stop. We could not walk behind because of the ice on the path. Pity, but very understandable

  • Beautiful place, but you should wear a raincoat. Unfortunately you need to pay 750 for parking and awful toilets
  • Nice waterfall. The main attraction is to see it from the back. Take a raincoat with you.
