Many tourist traveling to Iceland put the day trip of the Golden Circle on the top of their list. Apart from the Thingvellir area and the Geysir Hot Spring Area, one of the key attractions on this trip is Gullfoss. The waterfall is neither the highest one in the country nor the one transporting the highest volume of water. Nonetheless, visiting the iconic 32 meter high waterfall is definitely an impressive experience. I take you to this place in my Pictured Story based on an early morning visit.
Gullfoss – Location & Transport
Gullfoss is some 120km away from Reykjavik, the drive is slightly less than two hours. The waterfall is located at route 35. You can drive there with a normal car, the route is paved. However, a few kilometers North of Gullfoss, the route turns into the core part of the famous Kjölur Route (F35), which does have vehicle limitations if you travel by rental car.
