Highlights from the Place

Skógafoss is located in South Iceland, on the river Skógá. It is 62 metres high (203 feet) and 15 metres wide (50 feet). It falls from the cliffs of what was once the coastline of Iceland. Skógá is fed by meltwater from both Mýrdalsjökull and Eyjafjallajökull. In sunny days, a rainbow or even double rainbows are formed consistently due to the constant spray from Skógarfoss. At the east side of the waterfall are steps leading up to a viewing platform at the top of Skógarfoss. It is also the starting point of the famous hiking trail Fimvörðurháls trail, from Skógar to Þórsmörk.
