Iceland Waterfalls Map: 15 Best Waterfalls In Iceland


Iceland waterfalls are staggeringly lovely, and that is the reason this country has become popular for having some of the best falls on the planet.

The territory is an ideal mix of tough mountains and dissolving ice sheets in the mid-year, so there are north of 10,000 waterfalls here!

I visited the country for an entire month, and this is my rundown of some of the best waterfalls in Iceland, complete with an Iceland waterfalls map!



Iceland About This Guide


This rundown is requested sequentially, expecting you to lease a vehicle and drive the Ring Street in a counterclockwise direction, beginning with the southern waterfalls first and afterward going on a round trip around the whole island, remembering a stop for the more distant Westfjords and Snaefellsnes Promontory, until you end up back in western Iceland, close to Reykjavik.

This is the thing I did on my excursion to Iceland, and the driving was a cycle-depleting experience, yet the sights en route were absolutely worth the effort! The waterfalls on this rundown are all reachable with a typical 2WD vehicle as well as a touch of climbing.

Iceland Waterfalls Map


Here is an Icelandic waterfall map you can use to design your excursion. You can tap the symbols to get more data and headings for each focal point, but remember that some of the areas in this guide might be inexact.

For more nitty-gritty data on the most proficient method to get to every one of the Icelandic waterfalls on this guide, you can look at my singular travel guides for every area.

1. Iceland Seljalandsfoss Waterfall


Seljalandsfoss is one of the primary waterfalls you’ll check out if you drive south on Ring Street from Reykjavik. Additionally, it’s perhaps one of the most well-known and naturally attractive cascades in Iceland.

At the point when you’re finished respecting the tumbles from the front, you can stroll behind the cascade for another viewpoint. Be cautious with your gadgets close to the falls since there’s a great deal of fog!



2. Gljufrabui Waterfall


Gljufrabui is a perfect secret cascade that you can arrive at on a short, brief stroll from Seljalandsfoss.

The falls are concealed within a cavern; however, you can draw a closer look by one or the other strolling through the kickoff of the cavern or scaling above it and looking through an opening in the roof of the cavern.



3. Skogafoss Waterfall


Taking a terrible photograph of Skogafoss is exceedingly difficult. Every little thing about it is great, from the dark volcanic sand on the shore to the strong sheet of water pouring down between green precipices that seem as though they came from a dream film.

The size of Skogafoss is great as well. It’s around 60 meters tall and 25 meters wide, making it one of the taller waterfalls in Iceland.



4. Kvernufoss Waterfall


This is a lesser-known 30-meter (100-foot) tall cascade close to Skogafoss, however, it’s effectively perhaps the best cascade in Iceland.

The short climb from Skogar to Kvernufoss is a grand strolling way through a mind-blowing green gully that seems as though something out of The Lord of the Rings. The climb to the falls is worth the effort only for the environmental factors alone!

5. Svartifoss Waterfall


This is perhaps one of the most special cascades in Iceland. The name Svartifoss signifies ‘dark falls’ and it comes from the dim magma basalt segments encompassing the cascade. It might little search in photographs, however it’s around 20 meters tall!

6. Hengifoss Waterfall


Hengifoss has to be one of the most incredible waterfalls in Iceland, although it does have some tough competition from Dynjandi and Haifoss. This waterfall looks like something from Mars. The big lines of red clay sandwiched between the rock layers give it such a bizarre, unbelievable look. It’s also the second-tallest waterfall in Iceland, at 130 meters (420 feet).

7. Litlanesfoss Waterfall


This is a cascade you’ll climb past while heading to Hengifoss. Like Svartifoss (#5), this is one more cascade encompassed by odd-looking basalt rock segments.

Litlanesfoss may not be the greatest cascade in Iceland at 30 meters tall, yet it wins in uniqueness, and it’s a gift on the off chance that you’re as of now climbing to Hengifoss. Two unbelievable Icelandic waterfalls in a single short climb!



8. Gufufoss Waterfall


This is an extraordinary cascade that seems to be a twin of Skogafoss, but is significantly less swarmed with travelers. Very much like Skogafoss, it’s a major cascade emptying down into a rough stream, and you can do a short climb up to the highest point of the cascade in the event that you’d like.

9. Iceland Dettifoss Waterfall


This is the most impressive cascade in Europe, and it’s taken care of by a tremendous frigid stream. The mayhem and sheer volume of water pouring through here are insane to watch. Try not to go excessively near the edge as I did! I was unable to oppose getting a superior look.

Dettifoss is around 170 kilometers (105 miles) east of Akureyri and just requires a brief diversion from the Ring Street, so it’s quite easy to visit in the event that you make it over to eastern Iceland.

10.Iceland  Godafoss Waterfall


The middle-aged head of Iceland emblematically tossed the old Norse icons into this cascade when Iceland switched from agnosticism completely to Christianity. The name Godafoss comes from this story, and it signifies ‘cascade of the divine beings’.

Godafoss is a gathering of falls consolidated into one horseshoe-shaped cascade with awesome blue varieties that look stunning. It seems to be a little Niagara Falls, right?

Godafoss is situated around 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Akureyri in northern Iceland. It’s right next to Ring Street, so it’s an easy decision to visit in the event that you’re in eastern Iceland!

11. Iceland Dynjandi Waterfall


This is one of the greatest and most noteworthy waterfalls in Iceland. It seems as though 1,000 little waterfalls have consolidated into one tremendous cascade streaming over the stones. The level is 100 meters, and it is clearly. You can hear it from the parking area, which is nearly a kilometer away.



Dynjandi is situated in the Westfjords, making it one of the more far-off waterfalls on this rundown. It’s around 360 kilometers (220 miles) north of Reykjavik, and you need to drive on some lofty and startling streets in the fjords; however, arriving at it with any 2WD rental vehicle is as yet conceivable. In the event that you’re groping for the test of arrival, this truly is perhaps one of the best cascades in Iceland.

Could you at any point see little me in the image underneath?

12. Iceland Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall


Kirkjufellsfoss is a famous cascade. Nothing shouts ‘Iceland’ very like this perspective on the green mountain and three smaller than expected waterfalls.

The name for this cascade signifies “church mountain falls,” and it comes from the top behind the scenes that is molded similar to a congregation. By and by, I think it seems to be a wizard cap, which would be fitting since this area likewise seems to be a scene from The Lord of the Rings.

13.Iceland Bruarfoss Waterfall


I think Bruarfoss wins the honor of being the bluest cascade in Iceland and, conceivably, on the planet. It’s a straightforward cascade running into a fissure in the stones; however, you need to respect the shades of the dark volcanic rocks blended in with the ideal blue icy mass water. It’s simply stunning.

14. Icelandi Gullfoss Waterfall


Gullfoss is important for the Brilliant Circle, one of the most well-known vacationer courses in Iceland. This is a major cascade that goes down in two stages and has a lot of various perspectives. This one is just a 90-minute drive from Reykjavik, so that is part of the reason why it’s perhaps one of the most popular falls in the country.

15. Haifoss Waterfall


Haifoss is effectively one of my number one waterfalls in the entire country of Iceland, but at the same time, it’s one of the harder ones to reach. Try not to let that keep you down!

The primary cascade is 120 meters (400 feet) tall, making it the third-tallest cascade in Iceland. There’s likewise a second (colossal) cascade running into a similar gulch, which is a really noteworthy ravine in itself. The subsequent all-encompassing perspectives you can arrive at are staggering.
