Skogafoss Adventure Holidays
Skogafoss, is a stunning place to visit while on your Icelandic adventure. Call the travel experts at Exodus and discus the options to suit you. Iceland's coasts are dotted with waterfalls reflecting the rapid rise of the land following deglaciation at the end of the last ice age about 10,000 years ago. Some of the waterfalls are marked by a rusty brown streak on the rock cliff and this reflects the origin of the water draining boggy areas where significant iron is in solution. This is quickly oxidized upon contact with air and the insoluble oxidized iron precipitates as rusty iron oxide on the rocks. The rocks at Skogafoss are black to brown, not rusty, reflecting the local absence of bogs above the falls.
