Welcome to Gullfoss
Situated on the Hvítá River, the mesmerising and voluminous Gullfoss tumbles down a two-tiered drop into a rugged canyon. Each day, thousands of gallons (around 80 cubic meters per second) of water plummet 32m, before continuing their charging journey along a narrow chasm. On sunny days, when the waterfall's mist hits the rays, it possible to spy rainbows. In winter the water often twinkles as the light hits ice particles.
It's one of the most easily accessible falls, with a large parking area and two access points by car, one from the Gullfoss tourist information centre and the other road to a lower viewing point overlooking Gullfoss.
