Skógafoss Waterfalls are one of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls of Iceland. The Skógafoss Waterfalls are 60 metres in height and 25 metres wide and are situated on the Skógá River. On a sunny day, the spray from the waterfall creates a beautiful double rainbow. TO get close to the waterfalls, visitors are required to climb up metal stairs. There are hiking and trekking trails located at the eastern side of the waterfall that lead up to Fimmvörðuháls, a pass between the glaciers Eyjafjallajökull and Mýrdalsjökull. These waterfalls have been used as filming locations for many movies and music videos.
