10 spots you can?t miss on Iceland?s South Coast

From thundering waterfalls to glacial lagoons, Iceland's South Coast has it all

I?m Lisa from The Wandering Lens and I?m an Iceland addict.
If you could have a wish list of natural wonders to visit in your lifetime, you may well find them all located along Iceland?s South Coast.
From waterfalls to glaciers, volcanoes and rugged coastlines, Iceland is on everyone?s bucket list for a reason.
It?s spectacular.
Iceland has become one of the most popular places to visit and thanks to the increase in flights from the US, UK and Europe, it?s super easy to access provided the weather is playing in your favor.

The Do?s and Don?ts of an Iceland Road Trip

The wild conditions of this island nation can be unpredictable and like nothing you?ve ever seen before, but they?re usually followed by gorgeous light and a little magic. It?s a country where one minute can be a total blizzardy whiteout and the next rainbows or sparkling aurora.
Having visited Iceland three times now to compile content for my guide to Iceland?s Best Photography Locations, the first thing I recommend to anyone planning a trip there is this. Hire a car. Having wheels will allow you to see so much more and experience a real adventure as you cruise past epic scenery and stop whenever you like.
So, lets move on to the good stuff! Here are my picks for ten spots you can?t miss along the Iceland South Coast.
1. Seljalandfoss + Gljúfrabúi Waterfalls
As one of the first major natural beauties you?ll come across on the drive from Reykjavik, Seljalansfoss is one of the highlights on a trip to Iceland. At over 60m in height, the waterfall drops over a giant cave which you can walk behind in the right conditions and feel the intensity and power up close.  
As one of a series of waterfalls connected by a little walking path, if you stop here you need to wander to the left and see the others. At the end you may start to see people returning a little drenched and that?s because they?ve found Gljúfrabúi. Gljúfrabúi is hidden in a cylinder-live cave of mist which you can access by walking upstream into it?s watery lair.
Be sure to take a raincoat and waterproof camera because it?s well worth getting completely soaked to experience what it?s like inside the cave.

2. Skogafoss Waterfall
Rumored to be guarding treasure beneath its cascading veil, Skogafoss is my favorite of all the waterfalls in Iceland. There?s something so simple yet stunning about it?s formation, falling perfectly off the cliff which was once the coast of Iceland.
Skogafoss at sunrise, midday, sunset and under star filled skies is worth visiting but to avoid the crowds aim for either earlier or later. As an easy to access location it?s a hot spot for tour coaches on day trips so can fill up very quickly during the day.
One thing you need to do here is capture that classic shot standing beneath Skogafoss (see below) and then climb...
