Do you love adventure and stunning natural beauty? Then you'll fall head over heels for Gullfoss waterfall! This majestic cascade is one of Iceland's most popular tourist attractions, and it's easy to see why.
The waterfall originates in the Langjökull glacier, and gets its name from the stunning gold hue it gives off as it tumbles down into the canyon. The waterfall drops down into a crevice of 32 meters (105 ft) in two steps, with each being around 11 or 21 meters high. On many occasions, rainbows can be spotted in the falls thanks to the refracted light.
Whether you're admiring it from afar or getting up close and personal, Gullfoss will stun you either way.
