Gullfoss is definitely a must see stop on the Golden Circle. The falls are absolutely spectacular and the photos dont fully do them justice!

Gulfoss is one of the most powerful and scenic waterfalls in Iceland, part of the Golden Circle route, 10 min drive East from Geysir Center. There is a car park nearby, short walk to the falls.

Fantastic place and one of the highlights of our trip to Iceland. We were blessed with pretty perfect weather. Not much point trying to describe it, just go and experience the falls for yourself if you're lucky enough.

This is a popular stop along the Golden Circle route. The falls are immense, thundering and lovely, with many different viewpoints to view them from. There are boardwalks to the viewpoints so even those with mobility issues can access the viewpoints. Food and restrooms are...More

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