Slæðufoss (Fimmvörduháls)

Slæðufoss (Veil Waterfall) is a very intriguing waterfall located on the upper course of the Skógá River. You can find Slæðufoss along an alternative route of the Fimmvörduháls trek.

From the parking lot at Skógafoss waterfall, it’s nearly 10 kilometers with an elevation gain of 650 meters. This can make for a very interesting full-day trek, with the beautiful reward of this waterfall, which is rarely seen in photos from Iceland.
