14 things to doin Reykjavik
It is one of the best places on the planet for those who are on the lookout for inspiration or fascinating impressions for years to come.
Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Reykjavik
To see a furious and majestic waterfall, the travelers in Iceland go to Dettifoss. Seljalandsfoss is worth visiting as the country's most beautiful waterfall.

This waterfall is so special because of its low power, which makes it look snow-white, light and airy. It looks as if it were soaring above the ground, as it doesn't flow down the slope, but comes off a precipitous cliff. But that's not all about it, as it turns out. You can watch Seljalandsfoss from the backside, a special trail taking you to a cavern behind the water wall.

The landscape of the area, where Seljalandsfoss is located, looks as if copied from the most unrealistic dreams. Lush green hills, steep rocks, bright color contrasts... You want to stay in such a place as long as possible, admire the nature, speak or keep silent, and, finally, just be happy with the fact that you are alive!

The cost: a ticket from Reykjavík by Sterna buses will cost you from 4500 ISK for adults and 2200 ISK for children under 11, and children under 4 can travel for free.

How to get: going by Sterna bus from Reykjavík will take you 2 hours, whereas going from Skógar by tour bus will take you 30 minutes. There are buses, departing from Reykjavík at 8:30 and 17:00, going back at 9:25 and 16:40. This bus service is available from May to September.
