The next stop on this amazing tour is the majestic Gullfoss Waterfall. Which is without a doubt on of Iceland’s amazing and famous waterfalls. The name translates directly as the Golden Falls. It comes from the glacial river Hvítá. The Gullfoss Waterfall drops amazingly down two huge steps 11m (36ft) and 22m (71ft) and then distributes into a 2,5 km (1.6 mi) long crevasse. The crevasse was formed at the end of the Ice Age by catastrophic flood waves. Each year it is lengthened by 25cm (9.8ft) because of the constant water erosion.
The waterfall created immense power which you will witness and experience firsthand when walking along side by it. You will enjoy the mist of glacial water on your face and if the sun is up you’ll most likely witness a beautiful rainbow as you can see in the photo above.
On the tour we also stop at the picturesque Faxi waterfall. But there is more. We also offer a number of optional stops, including Efstadal dairy farm, Fridheimar Tomato Farm, The Secret Lagoon and more.
But the Secret Lagoon is one of the best kept secret as a tourist attraction in Iceland.
