Explore the best places for photography at Gljufrafoss, Iceland

latest contributors

Gljúfrafoss is an impressive waterfall right beside the famous Seljalandsfoss in Iceland. This waterfall is inside a narrow canyon and only 5 minutes by foot away from the well known bigger brother.

If you are nearby, Gljúfrafoss (or Gljúfrabúi) is definitely worth a visit, even if it's not that well known. You definitely need to protect your camera gear at this place, because there is a lot of spray within the canyon. If you walk inside it, it feels more like a cave, because the path is pretty narrow. You should probably wear waterproof shoes, if you want to visit this place.
