Gljúfrafoss or Gljúfrabúi is a small waterfall north of the larger falls of Seljalandsfoss in Iceland. The falls are partially obscured by the cliff rock, but hikers can follow a trail to enter the narrow canyon where the water plummets to a small pool.
Hidden in the hills of the famous Seljalandsfoss, Gljúfrabúi, like its name, is a mystical yet fairytale like fall that evenly drizzles down in its gorge. The name Gljúfrabúi basically means “the one that lives in the gorge” and that’s very descriptive. It’s epic green colors in summer and winter…
Just a few minutes away from the more famous Seljalandsfoss there is a little-known gem named Gljúfrabúi. It is marked but to get inside (yes you get inside a waterfall) you have to walk on small stones or in water so boots and a rain coat would be a great idea.
Gljúfrabúi waterfall. Don't miss this hidden gem if you are already at Seljalandsfoss. It is located just next to it.
Great waterfall, hidden away and many miss out on seeing it and only go behind Seljanlandsfoss. But, this one is also very beautiful.

“There are two ways to reach this twin waterfall. One is through Hvolsvöllur, driving into Fljótshlíð the other is via gravel road past the mountain (or hill) Stóri-Dímon. When you first see it, it’s a small waterfall, you can walk behind it and see Eyjafjallajökull glacier volcano through its stream or you can fill your water bottle with the most delicious water. But this is only the second drop of the falls. If you head further into the gorge you will see the original one, falling much higher. The name Gluggafoss means window waterfall and you will soon see why. The cliff the waterfall spouts from is made from tuff which is quite soft so the water stream was able to carve little “windows” into it and now the water spouts through 3 different “windows” in the cliff. It’s gorgeous and often a rainbow adds the cherry on top to this magical place. Worth the visit, no doubt!”

“Please do not miss Fjaðrárgljúfur during your visit. It is extremly beautiful. It is a spectacular canyon just a few kilometers west of Kirkubæjarklaustur, by the F-206 road a short detour from the road nr 1. It is accessible with all vehicles all year round.”
