Skógafoss
Posted over 2 years ago
Skógafoss is easily one of our favorite waterfalls in South Iceland. One of the biggest in Iceland, the majestic waterfall cascades 60 meters down the cliff. On a sunny day, it is common to catch a rainbow or two due to the spray from the waterfall. We managed to catch a double rainbow while we were here and the view was nothing short of spectacular! You can see Skógafoss from Route 1 (Ring Road) and to get there you turn off at Skógar and follow the signs. There is a parking lot just in front of the waterfall so you don’t have to walk far. Because it is so accessible, expect a crowd unless you visit the waterfall early. We tried to get as close to the waterfall as we can to get a picture without anyone else in it. Just be very careful as the waterfall is powerful and definitely be prepared to get wet! There are also steps just to the side of Skógafoss that leads straight to the top where there is a viewing platform. If you’re feeling adventurous, there is also a trail that continues up the Skóga river for almost 24 km to Thórsmörk, through Fimmvörðuháls pass.

A huge powerful waterfall you can hike right up to. Off to the right is about a billion steps up to a platform at the top of the falls for look down.

A favorite waterfall! This cascading fall roars with power and size. It is a magnificent site! Access to this waterfall is very easy by car then foot.
