Skógafoss

Climbing the 370 steps to the top of Skogafoss waterfall rewards visitors with an awe-inspiring view out over southern Iceland’s coastline. Standing at 60 meters (197 ft) tall, the heavy veil of water is impressive and walking close enough envelops visitors in a cloud of spray, sound and refracted light. Legend has it that a Viking named Thrasi hid his hoarded gold under the falls.
