Photograph Goðafoss

Goðafoss Waterfall

Goðafoss is a waterfall that seems to fly under the radar for absolutely no reason. It's a small, but very wide waterfall that's very photogenic.

The parking lot for Goðafoss is clearly signed and you'll be able to see the falls from the parking lot. Just take a quick jaunt up to the falls and find your perfect angle!

Since it was on the backend of winter when I visited, there was ice frozen into spirals on the rock which was really awesome to see. If you're lucky, you might see some reindeer while you're in the area as well!

Best Waterfall So Far

This is the best waterfall we have visited so far while in Iceland. The many different vantage points and lack of crowds are perfect for photographers. Plus we saw some reindeer on the way!

Very Cool Waterfall

This was one of the highlights of our time in northern Iceland. We spent a good amount of time here and I definitely recommend checking out both sides of the waterfall for different vantage points.

One of the best waterfalls in Iceland

Come early in the morning if you want the whole place to yourself!
