Seljalandsfoss Waterfall

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland as it was notably utilized as a waypoint during the first leg of The Amazing Race 6. This waterfall of the river Seljalandsá drops 60 metres (200 ft) over the cliffs of the former coastline. Seljalandsfoss is situated in between Selfoss and Skógafoss at the road crossing of Route 1 (the Ring Road) with the track going into Þórsmörk. One of the main reasons for this waterfall’s popularity is the foot path that loops behind it, allowing visitors to see its beauty at a level that’s up close and personal. It’s an amazing sight to see!

Hraunfossar Waterfall

Hraunfossar is a series of waterfalls formed by smaller brooks streaming over a distance of about 900 meters out of the Hallmundarhraun, a lava field which flowed from an eruption of one of the volcanoes lying under the glacier Langjökull. The waterfalls pour into the Hvítá River from ledges of less porous rock in the lava. The name hraun comes from the Icelandic word for lava.
