Gullfoss Falls, Blaskogabyggd

#1 of 206 in Parks in Iceland
Feel the mist from Gullfoss Falls, a stunning waterfall in southwest Iceland, as you walk right up close to the natural wonder. One of the most visited attractions in the country, the powerful falls plunge in two stages into a narrow crevice of the Hvita river. From afar, the 32 m (105 ft) deep crevice is hidden from sight, so when walking to the falls, you get the impression that the Hvita River just disappears into the ground. Hike along the crevice, which is 2.5 km (1.5 mi) long, and admire the incredible volume of water constantly rushing over the edge. The waterfall, along with Thingvellir and the geysers of Haukadalur, is part of the Golden Circle, which can make a great day tour.

  • when I found myself on the top of the shore, adjacent to the waterfall, I almost stopped breathing so much was the emotion to see and feel the power of Mother Nature. One of the most beautiful waterfalls on the island for its reach, absolutely unmissable

  • The 'Golden Circle' is a bit like Iceland's 'to do'. One of the stages of the golden circle is Gullfoss... It's just beautiful, majestic, a landscape that will invade my memories for a long time. Very easy to get to. Parking, restaurant and souvenir shop.
