This is a spectacular waterfall in the southwest Iceland. You can find it on many postcards so… you should visit it 🙂

Gullfoss waterfall
Gullfoss is the largest waterfall in Iceland

What makes Gullfoss special is that you have a chance to see it from above. You will have a feeling that the water disappears under the ground.

Tourists like to visit Gullfoss not only when the weather is warm but also in the winter when it is surrounded by snow. If you dare to do so you should be careful as some paths can freeze over. Wear good shoes and walk slowly.
