You Guessed It: Iceland

The Answer:
Seljalandsfoss Waterfall, Iceland

This spectacular waterfall—noteworthy due to a mossy cave at its back which lets travelers stroll behind while remaining relatively dry—isn’t particularly unique in its home country. In fact, there are over 10,000 torrents dotting the island nation, as well as glaciers, volcanoes, and lava fields. That’s not all that makes it unique: it also boasts a one-of-a-kind breed of horse with an additional gait found nowhere else in the world and a quirky local culture that routinely re-directs building projects and highways to avoid angering invisible “hidden folk.”
