Goðafoss waterfall is located on the river Skjálfandafljót in north Iceland, the fourth largest river in Iceland. Although the main waterfall is the most visited and photogenic I actually found the lower falls more interesting. Just downriver from the main falls, the river narrows and is forced into a slot between volcanic rock formations. The small drop is slightly stair-stepped and creates several channels as the glacial blue water shoots through the slot. The sound is deafening and the sheer power of water hydraulics is on display.
Goðafoss literally translates in Icelandic to "waterfall of the gods" and is located in the Northeastern part of Iceland. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters, and along a horseshoe shaped curve over a width of 30 meters. The waterfall can be accessed from both sides and there are several trails to the rivers edge, however these are fairly steep and one should exercise caution while navigating to the bottom.
