A glimpse of Iceland

Seljalandsfoss, Waterfall Southern Iceland

When I was a child and my parents told me tales before sleeping, the treasure of the elves was often hidden behind a majestic waterfall.

Well, if there’s really an elve’s treasure, this must be the place where it’s buried!

Seljalandsfoss is one of the most famous waterfalls of Iceland. It is formed by the river Seljalandsá that , almost at the end of its journey, drops 60 metres (200 ft) from over the cliffs of the former coastline. Nowadays between the cliffs and the sea there is a vast lava plain created through the years by the eruptions of the surrounding volcanoes.

But between the cliffs and the roaring mass of water falling from above, there is a tiny, slippery path. If you follow it, you arrive just behind the waterfall, in a bluish small cave.

And this is were, I am pretty sure, the treasure is buried!

I had no digging tools so couldn’t go further in my search. But I had a camera, and what you see above is what it recorded from behind the water curtain.
