First look at Gullfoss or 'Golden Falls'. Gullfoss is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The wide Hvítá River rushes southward, and about a kilometer above the falls it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase".
A better look at the river before it plunges over the series of falls. Gullfoss plunges in two stages 11 meters or 36 ft, and 21 meters or 69 ft into a crevice 32 meters 105 ft deep.
The final plunge into this crevice is 20 meters (66 ft) wide and 2.5 kilometers (1.6 mi) in length, extends perpendicular to the flow of the river. The average amount of water running down the waterfall is 140 cubic meters (4,900 cu ft) per second in the summer and 80 cubic meters (2,800 cu ft) per second in the winter. The highest flood measured was 2,000 cubic meters (71,000 cu ft) per second.
Our first stop on the South Coast & Waterfall Tour was Seljalandsfoss. It is one of the best known and more popular waterfalls in Iceland. The waterfall drops 197 ft (60m).
Seljalands River source is the volcano glacier Eyjafjallajökull. One of the interesting things about this waterfall is that visitors can walk behind it into a small cave.
