Iceland could be know as the land of waterfalls. There are so many that nobody knows how many there are exactly. In the Winter, some waterfalls can freeze but the larger waterfalls keep flowings. Sightseeing travelers can be treated to fantastic ice features at these waterfalls.

Skutafoss Winter

East Iceland waterfall

Skutafoss is hidden away in a secret valley. This scene is captured from inside a cave. It well known to locals but difficult to find if you are driving yourself because it is not sign posted or visible from the road.

We often photograph this waterfall on our Winter workshops.

Winter Gullfoss

Winter Gullfoss

Access can be difficult at Gullfoss in the Winter. Often the path is too slippery so an advisory notice tries to prevent sightseers from getting close. There are good views from the safe viewing platforms and hot drinks at the cafe to warm visitors up after their sightseeing adventure.

The Gullfoss waterfall is a main feature on Golden Circle sightseeing tours.


Winter Godafoss

Goðafoss waterfall is the jewel in North Iceland’s crown. Known as the waterfall of the Gods, Godafoss is easily one of the most attractive waterfalls in Iceland. Sightseeing can be good in both Summer and Winter with easy access year round.

We visit Godafoss on our multi-day photo tours, but it is also possible as a day tour from Akureyri or Myvatn.


Winter Seljalandsfoss

Seljalandsfoss is the waterfall that offers the rare sightseeing treat of going behind the falls. Access is sometimes closed if it is too slippery. Anti-slip foot wear is essential if you are brave enough to access the frozen path.

This amazing waterfall s featured on most South Coast sightseeing tours.
