Simply Amazing

This is an example of a heavily-hyped tourist site that more than lived up to expectations. Gullfoss is a two-tiered waterfall that simply must be seen to be truly appreciated. A short drive or long walk from Geysir, Gullfoss National Park is quite accessible, free, and well worth your time.


If you look away from the falls, you'll also notice some lovely glacier views. Be sure to do enjoy the sights in the other direction as well.


As you walk through the countryside, you'll notice a number of horses. It's quite enjoyable to observe the unique Icelandic horses along with the pleasant scenery.

    You certainly have hiked to interesting places and the end result is fabulous. Great pictures. My last trip to 11 parks in Utah/Arizona was 150 miles hiking-and some areas risky, but adventuresome. Take a look; you may want a visit to the semi-desert

    You have wonderful pics of the Falls in Gullfoss. The more I get the info on your tips, the more I am convinced that I have to schedule a trip to Iceland sooner than later.
