Iceland is a European country that consists of a number of islands

situated in the Northern section of the Atlantic Ocean. The country

has a population of around 350,000 inhabitants and a surface area

of 103,000 square kilometers. The capital of the city is Reykjavík and

it is the largest city in the country that is often visited by many

travelers who tour Iceland. Today we would be shedding some lights

on the most important places to visit while in Iceland.


The Gullfoss Waterfalls

Nicknamed as the golden waterfalls because if the tourists who travel to Iceland

visit the waterfalls in a sunny day, the waterfalls are coated in the golden

color. Several travel packages to Iceland include a visit to the Gullfoss


The Gullfoss waterfalls tell the legendary story of a girl who used to own the

waterfalls in the 20th century. When some investors bought the area, they

wanted to build electric energy plants there. However, the girl disagreed but

when they ignored her, she walked bear foot for 120 kilometers. When she

arrived, her feet were badly bleeding. This formed a huge public campaign

against the building of the energy plants that succeeded at the very end.

Tourists spending their vacations in Iceland would visit the memorial of this

girl located near the waterfalls.
