It’s not as big as some of the world’s other waterfalls but how it comes suddenly out of a flat landscape makes it one of the most beautiful

Gullfoss is one of three stops along the Golden Circle. This waterfall was one of my favorites in Iceland due to it’s power and magnitude. It is beautiful!

You can't go to Iceland without going to Gullfoss. Powerful, unusual, multifaceted, dramatic: Gullfoss is one of the most beautiful waterfalls on the planet. A short hike will take you past the waterfall's first tier and a small meadow to a viewing area almost inside the top tier itself.

This major tourist destination sits at the end of the Golden Circle. And while it was a bit crowded, it’s still worth the visit. It’s breathtakingly large and the multiple levels flow with so much power.

The name Gullfoss translates to Golden Falls and is also why the route is named Golden Circle. The powerful waterfall gets its name from the golden shine when the sun hits the waterfall. Fuelled by the second largest glacier, Langjökull, it is one of Iceland’s most iconic waterfall. It is free to enter and you can admire the cascading waterfall from the well-formed trails with multiple viewpoints. This waterfall commemorates Sigríður Tómasdóttir, one of Iceland’s famous figures. The waterfall almost fell into the hands of an Englishman in the 20th century for the purpose of a hydroelectricity plant if not for Sigríður Tómasdóttir’s perseverance in preserving Iceland’s nature. There is a cafe where you can shop memorabilia or get some hot beverages and food. Unfortunately, to use the bathroom, you will have to pay a fee and they do accept card payments. Recommended time: 1.5 – 2 hours
