At Gullfoss – the Golden waterfall – you can usually get access to stand on the edge of the canyon and feel the force of the glacier river as it plunges to a depth you can’t see. There are some great views from some of the higher view points also and a friendly cafe at the top car park. On a clear day you can see Kerlingarfjöll in the center of Iceland and Langijökull – Iceland’s second largest glacier.
