Create an itinerary including Gullfoss Falls
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.

  • Unbelievably beautiful falls that are simply breathtaking. There are two places one can park. Either on the upper or lower level. One can walk in between them easily, but I prefer the viewing area of the lower level since one can see up and close the entirety of the waterfall.
  • We went to Gulfoss or "Golden Falls" in the winter of 2019/2020 right before Corona hit. It was a spectacular view and atmosphere. Very beautiful but icy cold! The store and souvenir shop next to Gulfoss is also worth a short visit to view and maybe buy some typical souvenirs.
