Part of the 1/2 day tour including the Geysers. Worth a stop and listen to the roar of the water. take your camera to get great shots. Looks even better when there is snow on the groud.

Amazing waterfall, better than Niagra, but not as good as Victoria falls. Get there earlier or later to avoid all the tour buses.

Incredible place - so beautiful. Just the most breathtaking scenery you'll ever come across. You have to see this if you come to Iceland. Staff at little coffee shop/cafeteria were so friendly and nice as well.

This 32m high waterfall is part of the Golden Circle tour. It is a pretty sight even though it is not a very high waterfall. Well worth visiting.

Was really surprised at how big and beautiful this waterfall was. It was just lovely, The wooden boards proved a little difficult to walk on, since it was freezing, but if your careful, its fine.

The whole tour was brilliant but here it snowed when we go off the coach, just brill. Little Health and Safety makes this a great stop.

How far are the is gulfoss from the reykjavik airport? We arrive at 2pm and then are staying north west but wondering if it is worth driving to see the falls and have a cup of lamb stew and then driving up? What time does it close in mid July? Thanks!

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