Waterfalls in Iceland

In Iceland there are about 10.000 waterfalls and due to constant volcanic eruptions on the island.  Additionally, glaciers melt forming rivers which in turn form waterfalls when passing through volcanic affected areas.

Foss is the Icelandic word for waterfall and often the name of the waterfalls end with “foss” Like for example Skógafoss, Goðafoss, Seljalandsfoss.

Every waterfall on the island has it´s a unique look and they are all very beautiful in their own way.

Skógafoss is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland it is about 62 meters (200 feet) high and 25 meters (82 feet) width

In the canyon of fire (Eldgjá)  is yet another dazzling waterfall which was formed by a volcanic eruption in the 19th century. The scenes of the waterfalls are undeniably tremendous and would develop a beautiful background for a photoshoot.

During the rainy season, the waterfalls get more massive because of an increase in the water content. During summer, the waterfalls are a bit calmer and more manifest. Depending, on the contrast you want for your images, you can select the season for photography.
