Gullfoss Waterfall

Most famously, the waterfall drops over two tiers, the first 11 meters and the second 21 meters. Just 1.5 hours’ drive from Reykjavik, Gullfoss is gorgeous no matter what season you visit it.

Entrance to Gullfoss Waterfall is free and open 24/7.

Where is Gullfoss Waterfall?

Gullfoss is in West Iceland, about 125 km (77 miles) from Reykjavik. Its source, the Hvita River, flows from Langjokull Glacier southward to the Gullfoss site, where it plunges into Gullfoss Canyon.

What to do at Gullfoss Waterfall?

First of all, be sure to hike out from the parking lot to the beautiful waterfall. Be sure that you stay well within the marked trail with ropes, because the area can get quite slippery. 

Other than the waterfall, visitors can check out Gullfoss Cafe and the Visitor’s Center. The cafe serves coffee, tea, and light meals. It’s open daily from 9:30 am to 6 pm.
