The area is well developed due to the large amount of visitors. Includes an parking area, shops, toilets and a restaurant. Gullfoss itself is awesome to watch.

It's easy to see why so many brochures refer to this as the best waterfall in Iceland, it's scale and spectacle has to be seen to be believed. The paths and trails allow you to get right up close and feel the power of the...More

Gullfoss is actually two waterfalls, the first 36 feet (11m) high and the second 69 feet (21m) high, on the Hvita River that is very impressive as a large volume of water cascades a total of 105 feet (32m) becoming a roaring torrent at the...More

Iceland is a land of untamed splendour, forbidding and alluring, magical and temperamental. It is probably the last civilized country to offer such uninhabited beauty in both its stillness and its turmoil. The minimum time frame needed to go on a complete tour of Iceland...More

Impressive waterfall with no hiking involved. Parking lot is right beside the falls. They’re beautiful & free to visit, keep that in mind as there will be plenty of people around.

It was a cold, rainy day, so we didn't explore much. Parked in the lower level parking lot and were able to quickly view the falls. A friend walked much closer and took spectacular photos. We rented a car to tour the Golden Circle ourselves....More
