The List of Beautiful Waterfalls in Iceland

1. Gullfoss waterfall

Gullfoss is located on the Golden Circle route and is, therefore, a popular waterfall in Iceland for many tourists. It is located near Þingvellir National Park. The waterfall can be admired from two different levels, at the top and in the middle, where you can see the water falling from a 32-meter drop into the gorge. On a sunny day, you should be able to see a rainbow floating above the waterfall. No need for walking.

2. Reykjanes peninsula

This small waterfall with the pyramid-shaped Kirkjufell mountain as a backdrop is a favorite among all photographers. It is located on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula which is also included in our top recommendations for Iceland. No need for walking.

3. Gufufoss-the least visited waterfall in Iceland

Go completely off the overcome track and visit Gufufoss. This powerful 27-meter-high waterfall is located in the eastern fjords of Iceland on the way to the picturesque valley town: Seydisfjordur.

The trap is easy to climb and close, and the small parking lot is located on the side of the road. And the best part is, you’re probably the only one out there!
