Nicknamed by one local as ‘The Beauty’ in comparison to ‘The Beast’ of Dettifoss, the name Goðafoss could be translated roughly as The Waterfall of The Gods. An impressive site any time of year, in late spring, if you can catch it while there´s still icicles bedecking its sides, it’s a particularly otherworldly place to visit.


History
In the year 999, a holy man by the name of Þorgeir made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. To mark the occasion, he chucked some Pagan statues into the water here, making Goðafoss the famous symbolic site of Iceland´s conversion.
