Iceland has many beautiful waterfalls, but Seljalandsfoss is one of the best. It is the largest one of a series of three waterfalls underneath the Eyjafjallajökull volcano (remember when it stopped air traffic in 2010 completely?). Seljalandsfoss has a specialty that makes it very entertaining: you can walk behind the waterfall without getting too wet. It is an amazing photo opportunity and if you have sunshine you’ll almost all the time see a colorful rainbow.

Next to the Seljalandsfoss there is a small shop offering drinks and some snacks, sufficient toilets are also available. The parking area is quite good but here you have the ‘pay and show’ principle: you need to get a parking ticket from a vending machine and put it behind your windscreen. What is pretty much normal in Germany is a bit unusual on Iceland; but it works well.
