Welcome to Iceland!

Location of the most picturesque waterfalls of Iceland

Iceland’s wild, unbridled nature will surely land on top of your sightseeing list. But where should you start? As this amazing island brings together fire and ice, why not choose the product of this union — water — as your starting point?

The mountainous terrain gives Iceland’s rivers numerous obstacles. Where the wild waters of Icelandic streams, creeks, and rivers encounter a boulder or a sharp edge of a rock, they cascade down in picturesque waterfalls.

We have chosen a few especially breathtaking ones. Plan your round trip wisely so you don’t miss any of these natural wonders!

2. Seljalandsfoss
3. Skogafoss

5. Godafoss

This demo presents a limited set of features. Visit the feature-rich editor example to see more in action.

You can change the placement of the image caption by setting caption-side in your content styles for the .ck-content .image > figcaption style. Changing it to caption-side: top will display the caption above the image.

# Additional feature information

The ImageCaption plugin adds support for the <figcaption> element:

<figure class="image">
    <img src="..." alt="...">
    <figcaption>A caption goes here...</figcaption>

By default, if the image caption is empty, the <figcaption> element is not visible to the user. You can click the image to reveal the caption field and write one.
