Gullfoss is one of the most visited natural attractions in Iceland. It is also the most iconic waterfall of Iceland. It is located in the Hvítá river and fed by Iceland´s second largest glacier, Langjökull. Gullfoss drops 32 metres (104 feet) in two tiers into a canyon with walls of up to 70 meters (230 feet). The average amount of water running down the waterfall is 140 m³/s in the summer and 80 m³/s in the winter. Gullfoss has a three step staircase and then tumbles in two steps. The water plunges down into the 32 m deep crevice. Gullfoss is a part of the famous Golden Circle route in Iceland.
