About this experience

Embark on a journey from the charming town of Akureyri to the majestic Goðafoss Waterfall, one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland, on a guided tour with hotel transfers. Marvel at the unspoiled beauty of Icelandic landscapes and the untamed beauty of Mother Nature.

Begin your adventure in Akureyri by hopping onboard an air-conditioned bus to travel through the breathtaking landscapes of North Iceland. Be amazed by the pristine beauty of the region, where the horizon is a painting of rolling green hills, distant mountain ranges, and stunningly blue skies.

As you approach Goðafoss, also known as the "Waterfall of the Gods," feel the anticipation building up. Upon arrival, be greeted by the roar and the mist of the imposing Goðafoss. Take your time to wander around, capturing stunning photos, feeling the mist on your skin, and absorbing the raw beauty of this natural wonder.
Learn how the waterfall earns its heavenly name from a tale tied to the year 1000 AD when the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Þorkelsson made Christianity the official religion of Iceland and symbolically threw his pagan statues into the falls.
Stretching 30 meters wide and plunging 12 meters down, witness the waterfall's horseshoe-shaped cascade pour into the mighty Skjálfandafljót River, creating a spectacle of nature's power and beauty.
