Akureyri, Iceland - Godafoss Waterfall

Godafoss Waterfall is located on the Skjálfandafljót River which runs through Bárðardalur and Kinn in Northeast Iceland, and is just off main ring road 1 by the farm Fosshóll. It is among Iceland’s larger waterfalls and also very beautiful. (Source:

Me: it was beautiful!  It is a split waterfall.  The area around the waterfalls is treacherous for walking and we had to be very careful.  A lot of people, slippery paths, pointy sharp rocks...I'm outta here!  I walked down the walkway along the other to get different photos.  We were to meet further down this path at the visitor center.

Goðafoss is closely connected with one of the most important event in Icelandic history, the conversion to Christianity from heathendom or “the old custom” in the year 1000.

 I walked across the span bridge.

 Another stepped waterfall was below the main pair.

Beautiful area: rushing and falling water, brutal landscape, dramatic skies.  And a woman in a red coat walking in the photo.  Perfect!
