Skógafoss is Best For
Directions to Skógafoss
Skógafoss is one of Iceland's largest waterfalls and even rivals Gullfoss as the country's most famous waterfall. At 60m high and 25m wide, Skógafoss is large and a classical rectangle in shape. On sunny days, visitors are usually greeted with either a vivid single or double rainbow, due to the amount of spray, which attractively enhances the already beautiful landscape.
Located on the cliffs of the former Icelandic coastline, there is plenty of unusual scenery around the area. A walking path which leads to the top of the trail continues along to the Skógá River where many other dramatic and stunning waterfalls can be found. Also close by is one of the best folk museums in the country. This interesting establishment houses more than 6000 artefacts for visitors to enjoy.
This huge and impressive scenic beauty provides an ample sized car park with toilet facilities at the base and is a lovely way to explore the natural diversity of Southern Iceland.
