You can see the streaming white cascading down the dark cliff face from the highway. If you look closely you can even see the neon green and orange and blue rain jackets trudging up the winding path to the summit. These are just to draw you in. Once you stand there looking up at Skógafoss falls as almost 200 feet of water and see the rainbow forming in the mist, the birds nesting on the cliffs swooping, diving, and calling out to one another, then you’ll understand the draw of this place. You have to climb to the top, not just for the perspective of looking down the falls, but for the long views leading out to the ocean and along the flats just before it, the scope of the view is entrancing.
