Gulfoss is 4 miles east of Geysir. Nicknamed "goldfalls" because of the rainbow forming above its head on bright days, they offer a superb sight you can contemplate closer via a short-distance footpath (the footpath also leads to the bottom of the cataract). The falls rush into the 1.5 mile long canyon. Gulfoss gorges. They rush so fast, so you should be extremely cautious when approaching them.
The canyon where the icy waters fall was carved out by the Hvítá river.© GRAPHICOBSESSION

Golden Falls was given its name in honour of the rainbow that appears in the sky here on nice days.© GRAPHICOBSESSION
In winter, the waterfall starts to freeze over due to the cold and can sometimes even end up completely frozen.© Colin Young / 123RF
