  2. Great guide to Iceland’s waterfalls. I was just there last month but only had a chance to see Gullfoss which was breathtaking – despite the fact that it was hailing with seemingly gale force winds. :) Your article inspires me to go back to see all the other falls. I’ll book mark it for reference. Thanks!

    • The first time we went to Iceland, we only saw Gullfoss, like you. We stayed there during winter, and we did the “classic exploration”, including the “Golden circle”. Then we realized that there was so much left to see so we decided to go back for a road trip where we had the chance to see all these wonderful waterfalls. I would recommend the trip, it’s really incredible. They are all very accessible, and so different ! Thank you for stopping by, I’m glad you found that useful. Have a nice weekend :-)

  3. Great post. I really like the pic from Goðafoss with the rainbow. It’s a really nice shot. Thanks for liking my recent post. I’m new here, and i’m really glad I found your blog. We’ve just getting started, but we’ve got a lot of great posts coming out soon :) I’m looking forward to seeing more of your photography!

    • Thank you ! Godafoss was a really pretty and breathtaking waterfall ! I’m looking forward to read about your adventure in Alaska. I’m craving about visiting this part of the world ;-)

  4. I love your Top 10 list. I would like to go to Hjálparfoss. I’ve never heard about it before. And I guess we were very near in 2012. But maybe next time. And which way did you go to reach the brink of Dettifoss? Maybe you visited Selfoss first? Normally it’s no langer than a 10 minutes walk from the parking place!
    Oh, your photos makes me longing for Iceland. Have a lovely weekend!

    • Hjálparfoss is really at the entrance of the highlands, on the way to Landmanalaugar, it’s a very tiny road, but difficult to miss as there is a sign indicating the waterfall. It’s a bit out of the way of the ring road. To reach Dettifoss, we took road 862 if I recall correctly. We walked quite a lot to get a view of the falls, maybe closer to 20 than 30 minutes :-) Have a nice weekend as well !

  5. Did you take all those beautiful images Gin? I tried to click on the site linked at the bottom (beautifuliceland … I think that’s what it was) and I got a security warning so didn’t proceed. Is that your site too? Anyway … really nice photos. Iceland is such a beautiful spot. D

  6. A great post, and what beautiful waterfalls! Goðafoss was especially nice, while Gullfoss looked very dramatic but might only be the weather this day? :)

    • I’ve been to gullfoss twice, and I’ve never had the pleasure to see a blue sky :-) It was always dramatic. That day the photo was taken, it was pouring down, we were so drenched. The first time was during winter, and Gullfoss was half frozen. Wtih good weather, a rainbow and a blue sky, it must be fabulous.

      Goðafoss was so pretty, it was one of my favourite !!!

      • How is Iceland in March? We have a week of vacation, but there is almost no snow left here, so trying to find another place to go. But for mist cases march is not the best seaon if year, neither winter or spring…

        • I’ve been in Iceland in December and in August, but never in March. But when I did my research about my winter trip, I’ve read that it’s still possible to see aurora in march because the sky is dark enough. Maybe Lapland is better, the snow is still good, you have great chances to see aurora and more light than in December :-)
