This beautiful waterfall is one of the most famous waterfalls in Iceland. It looks wonderful in the summer, but to witnessing it’s magical beauty in the winter is a whole different deal. The edges of it get covered in ice, the water seems to look even more blue than usual. Godafoss looks like a fairy tale destination in the winter. It’s one of those places you have to visit, the pictures don’t even show you the true beauty of this place. The name, Godafoss, which means “the waterfall of gods” comes from Icelandic legends that say a religious crisis was settled by throwing idols of Nordic gods into the waterfall.
