Skogafoss, Skogar

4.8
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Skogar
One of the largest waterfalls in Iceland, Skogafoss sits along the cliffs of the country's former southern coastline. The coast has receded about 5 km (3.1 mi) toward the sea, so these falls now mark the boundary between the lowlands and the highlands. On sunny days, you can often see a single or double rainbow above the falls due to the huge volume of mist. If you don't mind getting wet, you can walk pretty close to the waterfall and even follow a rocky path behind the wall of water. Climb up to the top for a different view of the falls and the surrounding landscape. A visit to Skogafoss represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Skogar trip itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

    But whenever a country falls, three in two days watching the four waterfalls, so coming here was slightly tired of watching. Climb up to the top, watching the waterfall from the top was so close to but I went to the next destination. Approach and power is out. I would be looking at word of mouth other people climbed on.

    We have visited the Skogafoss (by the way, as each of the waterfalls) in gorgeous weather. It seems almost a little cheesy: grün3 juicy meadows where sheep and horses graze in the Middle, and this beautiful waterfall. You can run close to the waterfall. Impressive! right next to the waterfall is a staircase that leads up to the top of the waterfall. From up there you have a great overview of the area. No Miss!

    It's a beautiful fall in Skogar, but tends to be overrun with tourists during some times of the day. If you want to take a picture of this fall without other people in it, prepare to get up early.  more »
