Iceland Day 2: Gullfoss

Note: This post originally appeared on my previous blog, “Weekend Wanderer”

For my second day in Iceland, I booked the Golden Circle Tour through GeoIceland for about $77.00. This was a full-day (~8 hours) tour by mini-bus, which conveniently picked me up and dropped me off right in front of my hotel.

One of our first stops was Gullfoss (“Golden Falls”), which is probably the most famous waterfall in Iceland, although definitely not the largest. But with a 32-meter drop and a double cascade, this waterfall won’t disappoint. This site involves a bit of walking, but a well-maintained pathway and multiple viewing decks make it easier for those less athletically-inclined. There is also a small tourist information center and cafe at the top of the waterfall. Restrooms are available, but for a fee (~$1.50).
