Obviously when TLC warned everyone to not go chasing waterfalls I was off daydreaming as waterfalls are second only to squirrels when it comes to my favorite thing to chase these days. With a seemingly greater population of waterfalls than people, there was no way I was missing the opportunity to let the waterfall chaser in me run free in Iceland. Why so many waterfalls? The reason is a mix of the country's north Atlantic climate that produces frequent rain and snow and its near-Arctic location that produces large glaciers, whose summer melts feed many rivers. For these same reasons, Iceland waterfalls are also amongst some of the largest and most powerful.
With so many waterfalls to choose from how is one supposed to choose? For me it was a case of popularity and accessibility due to not having a rental car and only staying in Reykjavik for four days. Of those I did get the chance to witness the following three were my favorites. With the furthest (Skógafoss) only 150 km from Reykjavik and en route to the not-to-be-missed Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon (more on this to come) and a high frequency of local buses and tours visiting all three waterfalls, you have no excuse to miss these ones!
