Iceland is a land of wind and volcanoes and glaciers—and also waterfalls! They pour over the volcanic cliffs onto the flat coastland below. Highly dramatic and incredibly photogenic, they are sure crowd pleasers.
The first one we visited was Seljalandsfoss, which was also the largest and busiest.
Next, just a few hundred yards up the road, was another waterfall that tumbled mysteriously into a chasm that was accessible only by wading through a shallow stream between a cleft in the rocks. Amy and I, lacking heavy duty waterproof gear, decided to pass.
Normally by now we would have moved on to other sights, but the winds were still too high for us to pass safely out from the shelter of the cliffs (and “shelter” should still be taken with a grain of salt—we were still heavily buffeted!), so our diver took us to an even more remote waterfall where we were the only ones there.
