“Do not miss this stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The Gullfoss Falls were one of the highlights of my trip to Iceland. These falls offered so many different views as the three levels made for spectacular photos. Only wish we were able to spend more time here!

“Beautiful waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

I loved this waterfall but having been spoiled with some truly amazing waterfalls of the world, this one seemed a bit small to me. However I did enjoy photographing it! If you are serious about taking a great shot of it you should consider bringing a tripod..using a 1/2 second or 1 second shutter speed really added to my photos. Also, move around to the several different vantage points they have for you - your pictures do change and you may ending up liking one view over another!

“Majestic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Really impressive waterfall and definitely worth seeing. Definitely more interesting to see than the Blue Lagoon.

You can very easily drive there and stop by the Geyser and Thingvellir.

Don't forget to bring your tripod!

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

The photo l took could not explain how good our day was loved the place .
A bit cold in October but worth the day trip out there the water is the most amazing colour and the with of the river is fantastic .
good to see on the golden circle route trip go in a small group bus better than the large bus tours .
