Gullfoss, or the Golden Waterfall

Gullfoss, or the Golden Waterfall, is a highlight of the tour, and includes a lengthy stop to give everyone enough time to scramble around the area. Well worth the visit!

In brief, it's a raging torrent from a glacial river. (Say, are there any nonglacial rivers in Iceland?) An overall view is shown on my base Iceland page. Here, as Gullfoss seems more a series of falls than an individual one, I've divided the sequence into two separate photos.

Gullfoss 1

Nature has provided many rock ledges to see the outset of the fall.

Gullfoss 2

Then you have to sort of lean over to get an idea of the main drop.
