Gullfoss
Located on the Golden Circle (tourist routes south of Iceland), Gullfoss is Iceland's most famous waterfall. Visitors often choose to see Gullfoss on 2 levels, on the highest point or in the middle of the waterfall, where you can see the flow at an altitude of 32 m into the gorge. If you come on a sunny day, you will have the opportunity to admire the romantic scenery when the rainbow appears and hangs on the waterfall. Photo: Iurie Belegursghi.
Dettifoss
Dettifoss is the strongest waterfall not only in Iceland, but also throughout Europe. The waterfall is only 45 m high but about 100 m wide and has a huge amount of water pouring down every second. The milky gray water of the falls comes from the Vatnajokull glacier. What is particularly memorable about the Dettifoss is the intense screams of the onshore currents gradually being swallowed up into the canyon. Photo: We Go With Kids.
Glymur
With a peak above 198 m, Glymur is the second highest waterfall of "the land of fire and ice". Located in the western Hvalfjordur Fjord, Glymur is fed by the Botnsa River and falls into the majestic mossy gorge. Taking over Glymur's highest waterfall in many years is Morsarfoss, the melting ice flow that has been emerging since 2007. Morsarfoss has a height of about 228 m, is still relatively unfamiliar and difficult to access. Photo: Wei Seah.
