(1) Channel Your Inner Viking at the Skógafoss in Iceland: The majestic 200-foot Skógafoss waterfall pours out from the top of lush cliffs on Southern Iceland’s former coastline. Breath. Taken. Away. One of the country’s biggest waterfalls, it carries so much powerful water that the mist creates a single or double rainbow. Many come in search of the legendary “Viking treasure,” however, others simply want to explore one of the most breathtaking views in Iceland. Can you blame them?
