Feel the mist from Gullfoss, 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.

Beautiful place, we visited it during the last winter. It's magical. It's easy to get there if you have a car. If you don't, just buy one of the cheap excursions. If you take the excursions there is a chance they will take you to see the Icelandic horses. That's a nice bonus.
The view is breathtaking! Make sure you have enough time to really stand there and dwell on how magnificent this collection of waterfalls is. Be careful walking the wine in incredibly strong and can blow you down.
