Update – July 10th, 2018: There is now a well maintained path that takes you from Seljalandsfoss to Gljúfrafoss. Not so hidden anymore!
Gljúfrafoss is a small and hidden waterfall just north of Seljalandsfoss waterfall.
How do you get there?
Gljúfrafoss waterfall is just 1km from Seljalandsfoss waterfall. Following the cliffs, walk 10 minutes north of Seljalandsfoss and you will catch a glimpse of it hiding behind the cliff face. To get inside of the canyon and into the pool area, you can enter through a small 2 meter wide opening in the front.
Why should you go?
You are probably already going to Seljalandsfoss waterfall, so take the 10 minute walk north to see this hidden gem that not very many tourists know about.
