We went snokerling at 10.30am than drove to Gullfoss after seeing the Geyser and it was so beautiful and amazing.

This is a great stop along the Golden Circle, but it's very crowded and a bit anticlimactic, since you can see most of the fallsfrom a distance as soon as you arrive. There is also no windbreak, so be prepared to freeze!

I'd reviewed the itinerary for our Golden Circle tour and was very impressed by the majesty and power of the Gullfoss falls, however, nothing but being there would convey how stunning the falls are when frozen in the winter chill. It couldn't have been more...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
