Iceland Waterfalls: Visitor Contributions / Writeups

This page contains the contributions or writeups of Iceland Waterfalls from website visitors who have been generous in sharing their knowledge and photos. Its purpose is to make it easier for other visitors to find these submissions while also making it easier for website contributors to share their experiences.

If you'd like to make a contribution, click here.

We generally give preference to submissions that are accompanied with at least one photo (so you can quickly see what the waterfall looks like) and contain information that we feel will be of help to a fellow website visitor wishing to learn more about the waterfall being written about. Waterfall submissions that do not contain photos may be considered on this page if the write-up is informative, personal, or both. Waterfalls that we have not personally visited will be shown in bold.

You can use the form below, but if you find our host's interface too troublesome to use (especially if you're trying to upload photos), then just send a text submission anyways using the form, but also let us know that you'd like to attach photos. If you've provided an email address via the form, then we can reply back acknowledging your request, and you can then reply to that email with your photo attachments. We're very sorry about this, but there's not much we can do about SBI's terrible interface.
