Newest Review: ... and very windy; warm clothes are advisable, especially a hat (I had neglected to bring one and regretted it each time my hood was blown off and my ears were assailed by the bitter winds). Sturdy shoes are also advisable, particularly if you want to get closer to the waterfall because the wooden steps can be wet and slippery. Gullfoss gets its name because on sunny days the water cascading ... more

The population of Iceland is about 300,000. This remote island in the North Atlantic attracts about double that number in tourists and most of them visit Gullfoss. This magnificent waterfall is one of the sights visited on the famous Golden Circle tour which is offered by most of the tour companies on the island. When you travel outside of Reykjavik the majority of vehicles on the road are tour coaches and minibuses so you might understandably expect that these natural attractions are going to be besieged by tourists but, at least when we visited on a freezing Sunday afternoon in April, ours was the only bus at the visitor centre at that time.

Gulfoss, translating to "Gold Falls" is a watefall in South Western Iceland, located relatively close to Reykjavik, it is a regular haunt for tourists due to its convenient location and the fact that it is within a short distance of two further sights - Geysir and Pingvellir National Park. It was the 3rd major waterfalls that I saw in Iceland and it didn't have the sheer power of Dettifoss nor the spectacular romance of Godafoss. I think that what let it down was the amount of tourists hanging around - due to its accesibility there are loads of coaches and therefore you are not left alone with it like the other two great natural wonders. It's still a ... Read the complete review
