One of the highlights from an eleven-day trip I took to Europe in November was a last-minute decision to take the Golden Circle Tour provided by Gray Line of Iceland. This trip afforded the opportunity to visit several historic and scenic sites in Iceland, such as Gullfoss, which is pictured here.
It was a cold and rainy day on the occasion of the visit, and the spray from the raging falls kicked up and hit us all in the face hundreds of feet upwind from the base of the falls. As you can tell in this photo, some enterprising and adventurous tourists decided to get down as close as they could to the waterfall even though the area was closed.
If you ever get the chance to visit Gullfoss, try the soup at the visitor center. It’s fantastic.
