About this spot
Gullfoss is a two-tier waterfall close to Geysir and a popular destination on the Golden Circle route from Reykjavik.
It has become incredibly with all tourists over the past 10 years and can be very busy. Fortunately there are a few vantage points that make for amazing shots, so still well worth the effort of getting there.
There is a cafe close to the falls, often handy to warm up in as it can be quite chilly (and often wet) when you get close to the falls.
There are two car parks (both free as of 2019) making access very easy.
