What people say

"Gullfoss Waterfall was perhaps the most impressive natural wonder I laid eyes on in Iceland. It reminded me of my visit to Niagara Falls in the United States, the way the powerful water poured over the edge like a wedding veil. If you stop here during winter, I highly recommend bundling up because the wind can get extremely harsh. In addition to this, make sure you have crampons as the path was very slippery and hard to navigate once the wind joined the party."
"Gullfoss Waterfall, located in the canyon of the Hvítá River, is a stunning natural attraction where the river plunges in two stages, first dropping 11 meters (36 feet) and then 21 meters (69 feet) into a deep crevice. This majestic waterfall is renowned for its powerful flow, dramatic scenery, and the mist that often creates beautiful rainbows. "
