Gullfoss Waterfall is the most popular waterfall in Iceland and originates from Hvítá, a glacial river that takes melt water from the Langjökull Glacier! This melt water cascades down in two stages, one 36 feet high, and the other 69 feet, into the 1.6 mile long crevasse below. The fall is located about 1.5 hours outside of Reykjavik on the Golden Circle Drive and is a must see while in this beautiful land of ice.
