Skogafoss Waterfall

Skogafoss waterfall is "fighting" with Gullfoss as Iceland's most famous waterfall.

This is a classically-shaped rectangular waterfall that drops 60m with a width of 25m.

The breath-taking view of Skogáfoss waterfall, the scenic surroundings and the snow-capped heights of two towering glaciers are Skógar's major summer attractions. 

The waterfall has a very high volume of water and this means it can produce a rainbow mist. This is a photographer`s dream to get the opportunity to take beautiful pictures.
