Gullfoss in the Winter Will Take Your Breath Away

Gullfoss, Iceland in the Winter

About an hour outside of Reykjavik, Hvítá (White River) plunges into a gaping crevice, thundering down an 11 meter and 21 meter drop before its final 32 meter (105 ft) fall. The force of the water is so strong it that at certain times of year, it could fill six sea shipping containers in one second. In the winter, parts of Gullfoss (Golden Falls) are frozen, creating a magnificent spectacle of ice and cold mist rising from the power of the falls. Gullfoss, Iceland in the Winter

  1. Hannah these shots are really nice, I like the way the little tiny people give perspective to the size of the ice formations and the falls.

  3. Thank you for liking my post on Iceland, and I’m glad to find your blog! It’s the best I can do now to see the wonders of Iceland vicariously through other people, though I did manage to see Gullfoss when I was there 🙂
