Having had a great afternoon exploring the Goldern Circle, we set off early the next morning to head towards Vik, the southern most village in Iceland. The plan was to stop at Seljalandsfoss & Skogarfoss as we explored the Southern Coastline.
We arrived at Seljalandsfoss about 11am and the place had already started to buzz with tourists, many buses were stopping for people to have a 30 minute break.
We approached the waterfall and found there are steps to climb at each side. I climbed them, thankfully I had a set of crampons on my boots, these were a necessity. Only a few people climbed and ventured to the edge of slab of ice at the top. With nothing but a piece of string guarding the edge, they were taking their life into their own hands.
Due to the ice, wind & amount of spray it was hard to get a good photo as the tripod could not sit still on the ice.
The steps at the other side were not as steep but went in deeper, this was taken from the other side
After venturing on to Vik and exploring the black beaches before having dinner in a lovely cosy restaurant we started on the return journey to Reykjavik. On the way home we stopped for a few minutes at the waterfall to get some photos at dusk and without the hoards of tourists.
And a couple in Black and White:
These waterfalls were well worth visiting, the sound of the water is awesome. Next post will be of Skogafoss.
