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. One of the interesting things about this waterfall is that visitors can walk behind it into a small cave.

Beautiful, short walk. Pretty easy, but there are some wet, rocky areas to navigate that I noticed others had some difficulty with. If you can manage it, it is worth it. Don't forget rain gear or a change of clothes! Maybe try going in the early morning to avoid the crowds and make sure to walk down to the other falls as well.
