Iceland is often called the land of waterfalls. Indeed, there are literally hundreds of these natural beauties all over the country. From the powerful Dettifoss to the majestic Svartifoss, they are the country’s most recognizable attraction.

Being located between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean, Iceland’s climate is influenced by both. The warm North Atlantic climate produces frequent rain and snow, while the near-Arctic location produces large glaciers, whose summer melts feed many rivers. These streams of the water fall over numerous ridges in this volcanic island creating innumerable waterfalls. While all of them are majestic, there are some that are favorites among tourists.
