Skogafoss Waterfall

Jumping Behind Iceland's Skogafoss Falls
Iceland is no doubt a mystical place, and once you visit, you'll agree that its no wonder over 80% of Icelanders believe in the existence of Elves.

Skogafoss waterfall is one of Iceland's largest, with a drop over over 60 metres. Its mist touches your cheeks as you journey near, climbing up the spongy green moss along the trail that leads behind the falls.

Known legend has it that buried treasure lies in one of the caves behind Skogafoss, placed there by the first Viking settler in Iceland. Whether hunting for gold, searching for elves or jumping for joy, as we did, Skogafoss is a 'must-see' on the Iceland map.
