Feel the mist from Gullfoss Falls, a stunning waterfall in southwest Iceland, as you walk right up close to the natural wonder. One of the most visited attractions in the country, the powerful falls plunge in two stages into a narrow crevice of the Hvita river. From afar, the 32 m (105 ft) deep crevice is hidden from sight, so when walking to the falls, you get the impression that the Hvita River just disappears into the ground. Hike along the crevice, which is 2.5 km (1.5 mi) long, and admire the incredible volume of water constantly rushing over the edge. The waterfall, along with Thingvellir and the geysers of Haukadalur, is part of the Golden Circle, which can make a great day tour.

Gullfoss Falls reviews
Iceland is full of waterfalls and you get used to them after some days (so nothing is really interesting). But Gulfoss is definitely an exception because of the water masses coming down the river... more »
You got three platforms to see the fall, and two parking places. One near the cafe and souvenir shop. And one near the fall. more »
One of the best place in Iceland! Very windy so you will need warm clothes.
Beautiful place, but very cold and windy in the winter. Dress appropriate and be safe please!
