ÍS: Skógafoss

Skógafoss, Iceland For much of the south coast stretch of the Ring Road, the road runs along the base of dramatic cliff left behind when the coastline receded (within recorded history). About halfway between Reykjavík and Skaftafell, the river Skógá comes thundering over the cliff edge into a shallow ravine created by the falls.

Skógafoss, Iceland You can either walk up to the top of the waterfall or walk in very close to its base. The ground in the ravine is all black sand, creating a vivid contrast with the white-blue water of the falls and the lush green moss clinging to the rocks around it.
