The small town of Skógar, Iceland, off Highway One on the south coast of Iceland is home to one of the most popular attractions in Iceland, the Skogarfoss Waterfall. This amazing waterfall is quite a high waterfall that leads over the cliff faces here. There are often rainbows seen on non-overcast days. It can be quite powerful, so when you get up close it is advised to take a raincoat so you don't get drenched.

To get here, follow the signs and travel approximately two kilometres from the main highway along to the town centre. There is only one main street here, so there is no way of getting lost. Along the main street is an information centre and souvenir shop, and a restaurant. Your options for Skógar, Iceland hostels will be located on the main street as well. At the very end of the road near the waterfall is a campground with basic campground facilities such as shower, toilet, and electricity to use for a fee.

The information centre here has different tours that you can book including glacier hikes. Alternatively, provided it is good weather, there are a few self-guided hikes that you can do here around the area if you are planning on spending some time here. Also noteworthy is the Skogarsafn Folk Museum, which is on a road a little further along from the main town road toward the waterfall. The museum gives an insight into some of the different constructions they used to make houses in the olden days and a history of the lives during olden times.

You won't need more than a day hanging around in this area, as there isn't a great deal to do other than chill out and hike. It does make a great overnight stop-off on your journey of the Ring Road. There is nowhere to get fuel, money, or groceries here so you will need to bring it all with you if you need food and money during your stay here.
