Seljalandsfoss

Seljalandsfoss

is famous for being the waterfall you can walk behind.

This feature gives Seljalandsfoss a great photography advantage. Viewing a waterfall from 360 degrees gives you infinite composition possibilities.

From the road it can look uninviting, but being up close or behind the falls is never boring.


Getting there…

Seljalandsfoss never sees the sun in the Mid-Winter months. The constant spray and freezing temperatures can make the surrounding area look like a crystal palace. This can also make the area extremely dangerous as the path behind the falls becomes a skating rink. Recently, they have been discouraging access behind the falls after weekly accidents. Winter nights feature 2 spotlights which light the falls. This makes it a poor choice for night or aurora photography.

There can be good light in the evenings. In the Summer, the sun sets in the North Western sky, it is possible to capture incredible sunsets from behind the falls.
