Iceland is a waterfall lovers dream, as glacier water pours off the landscape throughout the country.
One the most impressive waterfalls I’ve seen (though Niagara Falls is pretty big!), aided by unusual Icelandic sunshine creating some wonderful rainbows, including directly across the footpath!
No sun, so no rainbows this time, but rain and wind made for an atmospheric explore of this 60m high waterfall. Possibly the first waterfall I’ve ever walked round the back of, pretty cool (and wet!).
The same height as Seljalandsfoss but much wider, Skógafoss also marks the start of the Laugavegurinn Trail, the most famous hiking track in Iceland. It’s on my bucket list but the unpredictability of the weather and distance to get there from New Zealand is problematic. Almost as interesting as the waterfall were the other tourists, including one guy carrying his skateboard up the track past the waterfall, and another guy in a suit, drenched through to the skin.
