Gullfoss is Icelandic for Golden Falls - and it is a truly spectacular 2-step waterfall set in a canyon of the Hvítá river. There's plenty of parking at the restaurant facilities located at the falls. The restaurant itself is large and well-staffed for volumes of tourists. The path to the falls leads from the carpark and is well maintained to cope with its tourist visitors - and easily navigated. There are a couple of sections with steep but wide steps. It's hard to describe the sight of such volumes of water powerfully falling into the gorge. The water falls a total of 32 metres via an 11 metre drop followed by a further set of falls that drop an additional 21 metres. The falls provide a stunning photo opportunity and are a popular stop on the Golden Circle tourist day-excursion.
