Seljalandsfoss is a waterfall located in the South Region in Iceland right by Route 1 and the road that leads to Þórsmörk Road 249. The waterfall drops 60 meters (200 feet) over the former coastline and is part of the Seljalands River that has its origin in the volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull.
Plans to build a visitor center near the waterfall provoked controversy in Iceland in May 2017. Opponents of the plans argued that the building would spoil the view of the waterfall and interrupt the natural look of the area.
