    Gullfoss Waterfall Magic


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     friesendm traveled to Gullfoss, Iceland, which is about a two hour drive from the Reykjavik, the capital. 'Gullfoss is a spectacular site and we were fortunate to be there on a sunny day when it sparkled and produced a rainbow,' he said. A personal highlight for him was seeing the varied terrain. This photo was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day on May 22, 2014.

    I was leading a group on a walking tour of Iceland last month and our first day out of Reykjavik we walked up a canyon to Gullfoss (Golden Waterfall). The day couldn't have been prettier and Gullfoss was glowing, even sporting a rainbow for us.

    This was Day 2 of a ten day walking adventure full of surprises and amazing scenery. I've been traveling for a living for over 20 years, and Iceland is definitely among the top sights around the world that I recommend people make an effort to see!
