Waterfall
Also known as "The Fall of the Gods," Godafoss represents a magnificent horseshoe-shaped waterfall and a favorite of many tourists. The waterfall represents the point in time where the Heathens of Iceland made the choice to convert to Christianity and allegedly threw all their idols over the falls. Spanning a width of 30 m (98 ft) and reaching 12 m (39 ft) high, this natural masterpiece is worth spending a few minutes on. Check out the gift shop where traditional Icelandic wool items are reasonably priced.

  • One of the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. It is easy access, and well maintained around the area. Great for photographer and family visit. Make sure you go to both sides. The west side is right off the parking lot, and the east side requires a short walk before you get to the fall. Both sides have different views. I like east side better because there are less people, and you can get both falls without blockage. On the west side, you can get really close the to fall, but you may not get the full view of both falls.
  • Fabulous waterfalls! One of the most beautiful and awe inspiring waterfalls I've ever seen. It's never too crowded due to its location and it's fantastic at sunrise and sunset.
  • Absolutely amazing! Breathtaking. We loved seeing this. Easy to get to ☺️
  • Magnificent waterfall. We came here in the summer and were blown away by its power and beauty.
  • Awesome waterfall, many trails all around it so you are sure to get the view and shots you desire.
