The majesty of Gullfoss in winter, south-west Iceland.
Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall) is a waterfall located in the canyon of Hvítá (White River) in southwest Iceland. The wide Hvítá rushes southward. About a kilometer above the falls it turns sharply to the left and flows down into a wide curved three-step “staircase” and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 m and 21 m) into a crevice 32 m deep. The crevice, about 20 m wide, and 2.5 km in length, is at right angles to the flow of the river.
Gullfoss, together with Þingvellir and the geysers of Haukadalur, forms the spectacular Golden Circle of Iceland.
