Gullfoss is often considered to be Iceland’s most beautiful waterfall. Gullfoss is not that far from Geyser area so this is a good days’ worth of sightseeing.

Gullfoss (The Golden waterfall) is Iceland’s most famous waterfall, and one of the natural wonders of the world. It is in the mighty glacial river Hvítá (White river), just a few kilometers from another natural wonder, the world-famous Geysir.

The enormous white glacial cascade drops 32 meters into a narrow canyon, which is 70 meters deep, and 2,5 kilometers long. It is a spectacular two-tiered cataract which hangs in the air like fine drizzle and forms a rainbow in the sunlight. In winter it has an unusual appearance when it becomes petrified in ice.
