Iceland › Gullfoss
Added by Lucas Pols
Experience Iceland's largest waterfalls and a highlight on the golden circle adventure.
The infamous Gullfoss Falls are about 45 minutes from Strokkur, and they have a peaceful calm about them.
With the temperature never really going much above freezing during the winter you get these beautiful ice sculptures with water flowing through them.
Most definitely a worthwhile spot on any Icelandic adventure.

Middle stop on the Golden Circle
This was our middle stop on the Golden Circle, we began at Thingvellier National Park and continued on to the waterfall here at Gullfoss. Up above from the parking lot to the upper lookout it was incredibly windy, but once we dropped down the stairs and down the trail that leads closer to the waterfall, it was comfortable. There are many great picture opportunities along the way! And make sure that if you can you walk all the way up close to the waterfall and take in its power. As with all the other stops there is a gift shop that provides good shelter from the weather for a bit to browse before continuing to the next location.
Gullfoss was beautiful, but too many tourists
I went in early june, and the waterfall looked nothing like these photos but still so so incredibly beautiful. The beauty however, was slightly ruined by the hoards of tourists filling the pathways. I imagine going in the off seasons, or early morning/late evening would make it a much more pleasant experience.

From the parking area you are free to roam the area. We started by walking down the stairs from the left of the parking lot.

Strangely enough I had seen this little barn in a ton of pictures before going to the Westfjords.
