Iceland Waterfalls are perhaps the country’s most recognizable series of attractions. They’re everywhere! This small island country has a north Atlantic climate that produces frequent rain or snow and a near-Arctic location that produces large glaciers, whose summer melts feed many rivers. As a result, it is home to a number of large and powerful waterfalls.
These majestic and gorgeous masterpieces of nature are a few of the very best to be seen around the globe. Here we look at the most popular of the Icelandic waterfalls.
The falls range from wide and powerful river-type monsters like Dettifoss, Gullfoss, and Goðafoss to tall and narrow ones like Glymur, Háifoss, and Hengifoss. Moreover, the country sports classic waterfalls such as the rectangular Skógafoss as well as unique waterfalls like the trapezoidal Dynjandi. And these are just the famous ones!
There are countless other waterfalls tumbling by the Ring Road as well as many more that don’t even have formal names! Waterfallers will have a difficult time just keeping track of the falls they’ll see.
