Seljalandsfoss: Is one of the best-known waterfalls in Iceland Seljalandsfoss is located in the South Region in Iceland right by Route 1.The waterfall is one of the most famous waterfalls and natural wonders in Iceland. The waterfall drops 60 m (197 ft) and is part of the Seljalands river that has its origin in the volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull. One of the interesting things about this waterfall is that visitors can walk behind it into a small cave.

Skógafoss: Is one of the biggest waterfalls in the country with a width of 15 meters (49 feet) and a drop of 60 m (200 ft). Due to the amount of spray the waterfall consistently produces, a single or double rainbow is usually visible on sunny days.

At the eastern side of the waterfall, a hiking and trekking trail leads up to the pass Fimmvörðuháls between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. It goes down to Þórsmörk on the other side and continues as the famous Laugavegur to Landmannalaugar.
