The Skógafoss waterfall is situated at the Ring Road in the south of Iceland. With a drop of 200 feet (60 meters) and a width of 80 feet (25 meters), Skógafoss is one of the biggest and most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. A single or double rainbow is visible on sunny days due to the spray produced by the waterfall. According to a legend, the first Viking settler in the area, Þrasi Þórólfsson, buried a treasure in a cave behind the waterfall. A local boy found the chest years later, but was only able to grasp the ring on the side of the chest before it disappeared again. Nearby open-air museum at Skogar is worth a visit.
