I recommend this as part of the Golden Circle Tour. I would not "just" see this one location. It needs to be included in the entire "package" so you can go see Thingvellir Glacier, Strokkur geyser, AND this waterfall. I only went in November and...More

Impressive falls. Covered in snow and ice during my visit. Unfortunately one of the path was closed due to winter conditions. Free parking, souvenir shop.

Stunningly beautiful. Photos do not do it justice!! The bottom viewing level was pretty cold due to all the spray but a fabulous experience!! The cafe has a lovely lamb soup as well.

Gullfloss is a huge, wide, rapid double waterfall. It is a ways downhill from the parking lot, but worth the walk and there are stairs. Paths will take you as close to the falls as you want to get. The falls disappear into a deep...More

This waterfall is part of the "Golden Circle" tour and is a great sight. It is possible to view the falls close up from two spots above it- from directly ahead and from the left (which you get to from a side path)- or go...More

This was a stop on the Golden Circle tour and well worth it. There is a well worn path going down from all the amenities to an excellent viewpoint. For those, more adventurous than me, there is a 100+ step down to the ravine for...More

Where are you staying? In which town? The Golden Circle is a must-see and it certainly is worth a detour.

We were on the Golden Circle EXPRESS tour which gave us 45 minutes there in very extreme weather. If the weather had been clear, we'd have wanted longer (not least to walk down the route that was closed on the day we were... More
