Godafoss, Iceland

(4.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Laugar travel itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Godafoss and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
