Controversy

Plans to build an 8-metre high, 2000 square-metre information centre near the waterfall provoked controversy in Iceland in May 2017.[4][5] Opponents of the plans argued that the building would spoil the view of the waterfall and interrupt the natural look of the area.[4][5]

Seljalandsfoss was a waypoint during the first leg of The Amazing Race 6.

Seljalandsfoss was featured in the movie CKY2K along with music from Björk.

The official music video of "I'll Show You" by Justin Bieber features glacial lagoons and rivers in South Iceland, including Seljalandsfoss.[6]
