Gullfoss waterfall may not be one of the biggest waterfalls but is definitely splendid in its own way! Gullfoss has a dramatic 32 meter drop in the 70 meter deep narrow cannon - a natural wonder of the world.
In the beginning of 20th century the owners had rented the waterfalls to scientists in order to use them to generate hydroelectricity, they however failed to do so and the falls were handed over to the state of Iceland.
