Guide to Seljalandsfoss Waterfall in Iceland
Seljalandsfoss Iceland is fueled by the glacial Seljalandsa River, which flows from the glacier Eyjafjallajökull. The glacier is quite famous because of its volcanic eruption in 2010. This is due to Eyjafjallajökull being located in the eastern volcanic zone of Iceland. The volcano has a unique location, beneath the Eyjafjalla Glacier. Its highest point reaches almost 5,500 feet above sea level.
When the eruption happened the glacier began to melt, creating a mess of mud, ice, and meltwater. The water flowed into the rivers which caused disastrous flooding and damage to the area. Towns around the glacier were filled with volcanic ash, making it an iconic event. The Seljalandsfoss Waterfall in Iceland is a must-see stop along your Ring Road or Golden Circle trip. So let’s talk about how to get there, what to do and what to pack!
