Goðafoss Waterfall

  Fossholl     more than a year ago
Goðafoss can literally be translated as "the waterfall of the Gods," and there is a good reason for that. The name of this 12-meter high and over 30-meter wide natural formation that runs through a 7000-year-old lava field refers to an ancient Icelandic legend. It speaks of a man who threw pagan statues into the waters shortly after Icelanders decided to convert into the Christian religion. Goðafoss Waterfall is located in the northern part of the country, about 450 km away from Reykjavik.
