Photograph Goðafoss

Iceland Goðafoss

Added by James Hueser

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!

How to Get There

Majestic, especially in the snow

This waterfall is so cool and unique because it seems to surround you from certain vantage points. It was very snowy when I went, so it seemed like I was in an isolated world that contained only me and the waterfall. Bring your ND filters and you might just be able to capture something truly dramatic.

Some call me the Jerry Macguire of the outdoors. The places special to me should be special to everyone. It is not my intention to hoard the best views around me. It's my responsibility to invite everyone to join, and give them every opportunity to do so.

Climb the Tower at Hallgrimskirkja

Just a part of something to do while in Reykjavik. There is an epic church that stands out strong against the skyline.  Inside the church there is an impressive organ inside of the church.

Canyoning at Raufeldsgja

Iceland / Raudeldsgja

Copule clarifications. The first, I say Intermediate and advanced. The reason I say this is because getting into the canyon is pretty simple. Few rock hops and you will be in a little clearing.
