Note: This trail is closed during the winter months and if the trail is muddy/has conditions. Please check ahead to see if the trail is open. You will still be able to hike sections of this trail even if the top of the falls is closed. Seljalandsfoss is located in the South Region in Iceland right by Route 1 and the road that leads to Þórsmörk Road 249. The waterfall is one of the most popular waterfalls and natural wonders in Iceland. The waterfall drops 60 m (197 ft) and is part of the Seljalands River that has its origin in the volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull. Gljufrafoss is located North of Seljalandsfoss and he's a little bit smaller. The falls are partially obscured by the cliff rock in a narrow canyon. One of the interesting things about this waterfall is that visitors can walk behind it into a small cave. This trail also goes to the top of the waterfalls where you have a complete different view. Just amazing.

First to Review

April 18, 2018. The path is closed. Too muddy which causes people to track around mud which in turn makes it even more trampled. Great walk nevertheless going down and back on the front side. 2.05 total to do parking lot to first falls then trail down to hidden falls and back.
