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.

  • 在大風雪中拜訪眾神瀑布,也是一種很新的體驗,不知道是冬天水量少,還是本來就如此,大家都認為這是冬天版的十分大瀑布,上空飄著大風雪,腳踏著每步都深達數寸的腳印,在一片白茫茫的大地中終於找到瀑布的位置,兩支相機都濕透了,希望下次有機會利用夏天來參觀,看看能否有不同的感受。  more »
