Waterfalls of Iceland • 360° Panorama
Total Views: 144 350
Getting in touch with nature and its natural wonders in Iceland can be a very enlightening and relaxing experience. And there is probably nothing in nature more breathtaking than a waterfall. One such natural wonder is the Svartifoss waterfall, also known as the black fall. The water falls from a height of about 20 meters (60 feet) and is located in a horseshoe shaped gorge filled with dark basalt columns.
Svartifoss waterfall is located in Skaftafell National Park. This park in southeast Iceland was established in 1956. Svartifoss is definetely one of the most popular sights in the park. Fed by ice-cold meltwater from Svinafellsjokull, the narrow strand of water pours over a broad cliff of hexagonal basalt columns that seem to hang like organ pipes over the edge of a horseshoe-shaped ampitheater. This natural feature was the inspiration for the architectural design of Hallgrímskirkja church in Reykjavík, and also the National Theatre.
The base of this waterfall is noteworthy for its sharp rocks. New hexagonal column sections break off faster than the falling water wears down the edges.
It's interesting that the Iceland's natural beauty is perfectly complemented by the numerous and almost magical waterfalls that are spread throughout the country. This island country has a north Atlantic climate that produces frequent rain or snow and a near-Arctic location that produces large glaciers, whose summer melts feed many rivers. Small or large, all of Iceland 's waterfalls have a special attraction of their own, each providing locals and visitors with a sight worth remembering.
Apart from Svartifoss, our favourite waterfall, we love several other magical waterfalls. In our virtual tour we show Sellfoss, Seijalandsfoss and Skógafoss which together with Svartifoss are the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland.
Skógafoss is a magnificent waterfall in the southern part of Iceland. It is also one of the most-visited waterfalls in a country that is bursting at the seams with waterfalls. Legend has it that the first settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure chest in a cave behind Skógafoss. A local boy found the chest years later, but was only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. So apparently the treasure is still there and everyone can try to find it!
Seljalandsfoss is one of the most famous waterfalls of Iceland. It is very picturesque and therefore its photo can be found in many books and calendars. Seljalandsfoss drops 60 metres (200 ft) over the cliffs of the former coastline. There is an unique opportunity to go behind the waterfall.
Selfoss is a waterfall in the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum in the north of Iceland which drops over some waterfalls about 30 km before flowing into Öxarfjörður, a bay of the Arctic Sea. Selfoss may only be 10m tall but it's attractively wide and horseshoe-shaped and this is probaly the most photogenic waterfall in Iceland.
Now we would like to invite you to our Icelandic tour to show all these magnificent waterfalls.

"Dearest In The Lord:
I am Mrs Florence Gram from Iran. I married to late Dr Daniel Gram who worked with Iran embassy in Ivory Coast for nine years before he died in the year 2004.We were married for eleven years with out a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.
Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited a box containing the sum of Three Million five hounded thousand Dollars in one of the Finance company here in Abidjan.
Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Eight months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct herein. I want a church or Individual that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that "Blessed is the hand that giveth". I took this decision because I don't have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's efforts to be used by unbelievers.
I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that "the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace. I don't need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband's relatives around me always. I don't want them to know about this development.
With God all things are possible. As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the Finance company. I will also issue you an authorization letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of this fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shepherd. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth.
Please always continue your prayers upon me.Contact me on this email address any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another church for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein. Hoping to receive your reply.
Remain blessed in the Lord.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs Florence Gram.
