Gullfoss Falls

Gullfoss Falls

Iceland's famed Gullfoss (Golden) Falls are justly rated among the most beautiful in the world, and make for a popular day trip from Reykjavik. The falls, with their awesome double-cascade, are incredibly powerful, which has meant they have come under threat of being utilised as a source of hydro-electricity. Currently, however, the fantastic vista of the falls, shrouded in mist and rainbows, gushing into a canyon on the Hvita River, are safely ensconced in a national park and remain one of the country's top tourist attractions.

Address: Gullfoss National Park
Transportation: There is a bus that runs daily from Reykjavic to Gullfoss. It leaves Reykjavic at 12:30 and arrives in Gullfoss at 15:15. This route only operates in the summer months from 01/06 to 31/08. Refer to for the latest bus schedules.
