You have a short stopover in Akureyri and want to get the chance to visit a wonder of Northern Iceland anyway? It is possible with our tour FAB/ IGT …..! This tour especially dedicated for short schedule lasts 2.5 hours and will bring you up to one of the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland.
This tour will drive along the harbour, bring you up to Akureyri‘s countryside through the newly built tunnels and finally to the amazing Goðafoss waterfall.
 
Look at its dimension, 12 meters (40 foot) high and 30 meters (100 foot) wide. This is one of the most spectacular waterfall in Iceland always listed in the top 5.
Goðafoss is one of the waterfalls on the glacial Skjálfandafljót River, the largest of them all. What makes it unique is its horseshoe-shaped canyon, filled of clear blue water digging it with such a power. We also love those rainbows which appear all around when the sun shines or breaks through the clouds. An amazing scenery is waiting for you there, ready to fill your eyes with wonder. 
 
The history says that in the year 1000, when the lawspeaker Thorgeir Ljosvetningagodi returned form the Alþingi, the oldest parliament in the world, he had decided that Icelandic religion would be of the Christian confession from this point forward. From this decision, Þorgeir threw all the statues and icons of Norse gods into the waterfall and called it the “Waterfall of the Gods,” in commemoration of recent events. More than just being splendid, this waterfall is related to an important event in Icelandic religion history. 
 
Enjoy a great breath-taking there and it will be already time to head back to Akureyri. On the way, we offer you the chance to have a nice sightseeing tour of Akureyri. You will pass through the old district with the vintage houses, discover the churches, pass through the city centre and come back safely to your drop-off point.
