Journey Across South Iceland’s Extraordinary Landscape
Skogafoss– Situated in south Iceland dropping over cliffs of the former coastline over 60 meters (200ft) is Skogarfoss one of Iceland´s biggest waterfalls. The 25 meters (86 ft) wide waterfall produces, a single or a double rainbow especially on sunny days, due to the amount of spray it constantly produces.
Legends say that the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried his treasure behind the waterfall in a cave. Years later a local boy found the chest from where he was able to grasp a ring on one side of the chest, just before it disappeared again, never to be seen to this day.
