One of the most famous and powerful waterfalls in Iceland is Gulfoss which is located in the South West part of the country and is rightly part of the Golden Circle tour route. It is awe inspiring to see it up close especially if you go in the summer season when it is at its peak strength. You can actually get relatively close to the falls and seeing it from several angles is ideal. There are actually two drops that the water undergoes, totaling well over a hundred feet. The falls have been depicted in many famous films, recently in the opening of the film Prometheus.
