Seljalandsfoss waterfall drops 60 metres from the river Seljalandsá over the cliffs of the former coastline. It is situated in between Selfoss and Skógafoss and is one of the most famous waterfalls of Iceland, made famous by the fact that you can walk behind the falls, which is exactly what Egill Ari and I did.

Seljalandsfoss also gained international recognition after it was a waypoint during the first leg of The Amazing Race 6 [my absolutely MOST favorite show, ever!!].

We stopped in at the camping grounds beside the falls. I loved the buildings which were built right into the ground. (©2010 Adriana Durian Photography)

This piece of farm equipment was on the grounds of the camping grounds - you can see the falls in the background. (©2010 Adriana Durian Photography)

After we visited the Seljalandsfoss falls and the camping grounds, we came across these beautiful horses. As with most of the animals we ran across during my visit in Iceland, when I got close enough to photograph them, they turned around and hightailed it away in the other direction.
