Waterfall Aug 15, 2009
Pretty much the Niagra Falls of Iceland. A three tiered fall that will amaze you. To get there take Highway 1 from Reykjavik for about 100K. Take the third exit on the roundabout just before entereing Sulfass. Another 20 and you are there. There is a gift shop up top, but if you are not interested in that I suggest taking the first exit and parking below, uless you like stairs. You can walk right up to the falls, just don´t slip! There is no handicap access all the way there, but you will see spectacular views from the parking area. I´ll put pics up in a few weeks...

Gulfoss is one of the largest waterfalls in Iceland. I was amazed at all the waterfalls in Iceland, but this one will simply blow you away. The sheer size of it makes it an impressive sight. If you are looking for a marvel of nature, look no further.

Gulfoss is highly accessible. Most tours swing by Gulfoss and it is easy to get to by bus or car. It is handicap accessible as well. What this all adds up to is a very crowded waterfall.

I recommend going there very early in the morning. I did and I was able to enjoy the waterfall in peace and solitude making it all the more better.

I'd like to visit it in the winter time. I have seen some photos of the waterfall frozen over. It looks amazing even when not moving.

Oh... and prepare to get wet. The amount of mist this waterfall can create will leave you damp in no time.
