Southern Iceland Waterfalls – Euro-Trip Day 13

The southern Iceland waterfalls are probably the most well know and most iconic waterfalls in Iceland. These sites were very busy with lots of people wanting to take in their beauty, but we can totally see why. These southern Iceland waterfalls are breathtaking!

We started the day early from Hotel Selid in an attempt to capture some of the sunrise. Although it started out super cloudy, we did eventually get some color to the sky and some nice morning light.

Hotel SelidTravel Bella accompanied us in our Sad Car Rav 4 rental.

We continued driving down the F-road as far as we could. There were signs saying you needed to do a water crossing at some point, but we didn’t know if that meant a river or a stream or a creek.  We ended up getting to the spot and though it would be best to turn around.

After we explored the F-Road, we headed back to the main highway and did the southern Iceland waterfalls route. The first one up was Seljalandsfoss. It was packed with tourists, but we managed to get a couple of pictures with little to no tourists in them.

After visiting the Seljalandsfoss waterfall, we took a lunch break in the parking lot. We brought our mini camp stove and supplies on the trip, so we boiled some water, made some lunch and coffee and hot chocolate. It started to rain (no surprise) midway through our lunch, so we ended up huddled under shelter waiting it out.

After lunch we made our way to Skogafoss waterfall. It was a much more impressive waterfall. We hung out in that area for a little while, until we were wet enough from the mist and the rain.

The rest of the day we spent driving around, exploring some of the back roads and just enjoying the trip. In the evening we made our way back to the Hotel Selid for dinner and to lounge in their hot tub. It was a very pleasant day exploring the southern Iceland waterfalls Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss.
