About Gullfoss Waterfall, Reykjavik

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.

The waterfall carries glacial water which has a hint of brown colour because of which when it falls down creates an illusion of shimmer around it, this is how it gets its name ‘Golden Waterfall’ – A phenomenon one would not want to miss!

One cannot help but glare at the beauty of nature; it is an ideal spot for you to unwind among the greenery coupled with the calming sound of water displaying the golden circle.
