Yoou are still reading after this headline – looks like you’re in! Let’s talk about Skógafoss, one of the real beauties in Iceland. Even if Skógafoss probably won’t be the first waterfall you will see in Iceland, this is one that will amaze you at the first sight!
Skógafoss is a 60m high and 25(!) m wide waterfall that once again represents the rough and strong Icelandic nature. As most of the sights, Skógafoss is situated directly beneath the ring road which means that it is really easy to access this gem. Great opportunity for campers here: Ever dreamed about waking up to a view onto a beautiful waterfall? Today is your lucky day then! The whole area in front of this water giant is a campsite for both caravans and tents. There are even a power supply and small sanitary facilities. However, we’ve been happy to have our own toilet and shower inside of our camper, if you know what I mean.
The waterfall itself is a really cool one and it always is an outstanding opportunity to get some great photos there. Due to its width, you can get some great shots with a person for scale in the foreground and a huge waterfall in the background, which shows the powerful atmosphere of this landscape very well.
As I do always recommend for barely all spots, you should try to get there as early as possible. The later it gets, the more tourists are around and you probably will agree that a landscape like this appear the most beautiful if you can catch some loneliness and be one with nature.
