#1 of 7 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. Before you head to Skogar, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Skogar trip planner , to make sure you see all that Skogar has to offer, including Skogafoss.

  • Easy access from Ring road 1, you have to go and get wet. Wear waterproof CLOTHING and get carried away. Towards 5pm lis Sun Rays are reflected in the water and crossed out! The rainbow. At 6 o'clock the sun is already hiding behind the great river that protects it and you will not be able to see it. You can see two, but we weren't so lucky. By the side metal stairs, steep and relatively demanding for some people, you go up to the viewpoint and you can continue the walk to wherever you want. You can see up to 10 more waterfalls in 2.5 km, very beautiful but not so spectacularly. On the way back you will see the curtain that form the drops detached by the force of the water.
