Gullfoss (Golden waterfall) is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country.
The river Hvítá rushes southward. About a kilometre above the falls it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase" and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 m and 21 m) into a crevice 32 m (105 ft) deep. The crevice is about 20 m (60 ft) wide, and 2.5 km in length, extends perpendicular to the flow of the river.
Geysir is the most famous geyser in the world. According to geological studies, the formation of the Great Geyser goes back to the final period of the ice age. In this relatively long period, the activity of the Geyser has changed and varied. Geysir is one of the most famous identity of Iceland.
The waterfall Faxi can be found around twelve kilometres from Geysir and Gullfoss, and eight kilometres from Skalholt. The waterfall is full of salmon and is a great spot for fishing.
