Golden Circle Part III – Gullfoss

Gullfoss is where the river Hvita tumbles over a fault line and disappears into a steep sided gorge below.

The views from cliffs above and alongside the precipice are stunning and the roar of water deafening. I have yet to go to Niagra, Victoria and Iguazu but this was pretty impressive to me. It was, though, a bit more touristy than Faxi Waterfall which we covered earlier on the golden Circle Tour.

Iceland certainly has plenty of stunning scenery to offer and the Golden Circle Tour will tick many boxes as a great tour for those just staying in Iceland (Reykjavik) for a couple of days. My recommendation though, would be to get away from the capital city for a few days and immerse yourself in the real countryside, taking your time to enjoy the offerings.

For those interested, my previous post on the Golden Circle tour covered Geysir.

Have a great weekend everyone, MM πŸ€
