Skogafoss is one of the biggest waterfalls in Iceland, with a width of 25 metres (82 feet) and a drop of 60 metres (200 feet).

During our road trip in Iceland we visited this waterfall three times. In fact, the third time was not planned. We were in our hostel when we noticed a forecast for high solar activity. We grabbed our cameras and warm clothing and made our way to Skogafoss. Aurora Borealis had already begun to dance in the […]
Godafoss is a spectacular waterfall located in Northern Iceland. You can visit it from both sides and if you are careful with the slippery rocks you can also get close to where its water falls.
