What are people saying about Godafoss

artalia1976, Sep 2023
Godafoss tour well worth it!
Wow, the waterfall was amazing! Our guide was great too! He gave us the lore behind the naming of Godafoss and he told us about living in Iceland (more than what you get from Googling). I would recommend both. The big van was clean & comfortable.

Godafoss and Laufas: places to visit
Good tour to Godafoss and Laufas. Good places to visit. I did not like the Christmas house, I think It shouldn’t be part of the tour. I think more time on Godafoss would have been better.
Katarzyna_G, Aug 2023
Great trip to the beautiful Lake Myvatn
It was a great trip to the beautiful area of Lake Myvatn! We could see fantastic Dimmuborgir lava formations, mesmerising Godafoss waterfall, and interesting hot mudpools area. The guide was very nice and talked a lot about the places we visited. My only regret is that we had only 30 minutes in Dimmuborgir as the place definitely deserves a longer visit, being one of the most iconic places in Iceland.
Marcia_G, Sep 2023
From soaring falls to soothing baths
Godafoss Falls was awesome….apt he walk was a bit challenging, but all on paved paths. then we had an opportunity to pet several Icelandic Horses, which made me want to ride them… next time I’m here! Finally, we relaxed with a dip in the Forest Lagoon…. A great way to end the day and ease out the tensions from walking. our guide was knowledgeable and helpful, and made sure that everyone was able to enjoy the trip, including those of limited mobility.
