Skógafoss

With a 200-foot drop, Skógafoss -- located in Skógar, Iceland -- rivals Gullfoss as the country’s most famous and tallest waterfall. According to legend, the first Viking settler in the area buried a treasure chest in the cave behind the waterfall. Locals found the chest, but were only able to grasp a ring, which is now on display at a local museum. Designated camping areas and hiking trails along the Skógá River have made this waterfall a popular tourist spot.
