Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the Canyon of Hvítárvatn in southwestern Iceland. The waterfall is a two-tiered cascading waterfall that plunges 32 meters (105 feet) into a deep crevice. Gullfoss is one of Iceland's most famous and visited tourist attractions and is a popular spot for both tourists and locals alike. The waterfall is located near the Golden Circle, a popular tourist route that includes other natural wonders such as the Geysir geyser and Þingvellir National Park. Gullfoss is surrounded by a natural reserve, with a viewing platform and several hiking trails that offer stunning views of the waterfall and its surroundings. The waterfall is fed by the glacial river Hvítá, and the force and volume of the water flowing over the falls can vary greatly depending on the season and the weather conditions. Despite its popularity, Gullfoss remains a wild and untamed natural wonder, and its beauty continues to captivate visitors from all over the world.
