The mother of driving experiences – that ever I would do again, in terms of the distance. It was little excess of 750 KMs of drive in just one day with all exploring mini hiking etc. I still smile when I write this. For a first time SUV/LHS-wheel driver, I have no idea which guardian angel ensured that I made it through. Will share share how I did it and how I shouldnt have.. 😉
First, we started bit late, at the last quarter of 10 and an hour of beautiful dark clouded weather and black roads lead us to Seljalandsfoss (Roughly 70Kms). The flat green earth sees a vertical green hill all of a sudden and there is a water leak from the top – thats exactly what it is. One can drive to the waterfalls from the long distance just by seeing it. It looked more than the best CGI work of a nature lover in simple terms. If its not for Iceland, I would still not believe its beauty. Its the cold bone chilling weather or that slight drizzling or that dark dusk cloulds that added clarity to the green or the air? I would have to go there again to investigate why it mesmerizes. Green pastures, hills, prefill every possible word with green and then this white thread on a green cloth appears. At the right place, a proper left turn takes us to the dreamy waterfalls. Best part of this waterfall is one can walk behind the fall if weather permits. It was bit slippery when we went due to rain. People go all the way up to view the falls from top. I managed to catch it via google street view when I was writing this. Am sure its worthy small hike to the top to see the little creek that creates that lovely show.
