South Iceland Waterfall Good for Relaxation

In honor of National Relaxation Day on August 15, the Huffington Post listed “15 stunning spots you should visit to recharge and detox from everyday life.” At number 11 in a ranking of the most relaxing places on Earth came Seljalandsfoss, a waterfall in South Iceland.

The list included stunning fjords, beaches, lakes, mountains and national parks in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Greece, Indonesia and other countries. Nordfjord in Norway topped the list.

Seljalandsfoss, which lies just off the Ring Road, is a popular destination among tourists driving along the south coast of Iceland, especially as it’s possible to walk behind the waterfall.
