Waterfall of the Gods~


Godafoss, the Waterfall of the Gods, originates deep in the Icelandic Highlands.

The first cascade falls 12 meters, over a span of 30 meters, and the cascades continue for quite a distance. There is an incredible volume of water moving here, and the sound, spray and color, are quite remarkable.

It is one of Iceland’s many spectacular waterfalls.

Godafoss can be accessed from the nearby town of Akureyri, which in turn is reachable by Iceland’s famed Ring Road.

Akureyri, like all Icelandic towns is charming, and boasts the northern-most botanical garden in the world,

where you can see many unusual and beautiful plants.

We are home at The Holler now, but it is still, cheers to you from stunning Iceland~

  1. Bonjour ou Bonsoir
    Un chant d’amitié me disait
    D’aller te fredonner son air
    Chemin faisant, je l’ai écouté
    Et je suis venu te le chanter
    Ce qui n’était au départ qu’un chant
    Il s’est transformé en mélodie
    Grâce a toi et ton Amitié merci
    Je te souhaite une bonne soirée et douce nuit
    Ou une belle journée
    Dans le bonheur et tendresse
    gros bisous, BERNARD

  2. Thank you for showing me beauty of a world I knew nothing about. Many of those rocks show their age, millennia beaten by weather. As I feel occasionally when waking up.

    • You made me laugh! What a wonderful comment! I sometimes feel the ages too, especially when I sit cross-legged on the floor, like I did all the time when I was a younger, but now have to sort of grab something, so as not to embarrass myself. All the best to you.

  3. Bonjour mon Ami Amie CINDY
    C’est l’heure pour moi de passer
    Dans ton bel univers déposer un petit
    Commentaire d’amitié te dire que
    Si chacune de mes pensées
    Se transformeraient en fleurs
    Chaque jour un bouquet
    Viendrait embellir ta demeure
    C’ est toute la douceur de leurs parfums
    Que je t’envoie!!!!
    Une agréable journée ou soirée

    Gros bisous. Bernard

  4. “La vie est un beau voyage” when we want to open our eyes and ears to the beauty the Divine Creator has given to mankind.

    Thank you very much for sharing the beauty of the places we are not able to visit. They allow us also to see the wonders of nature and to appreciate more what we have around us.

    Like your holiday came to an end, ours also. Thanks to photo’s, we later can call back the memories easier. Let us remember all those adventurous days and relive them in our dreams and memories.

  5. Ms. Cindy, these are beautiful pictures with good information, thank you for taking of your time to post them for the rest of us to get to see them. I am going to reblog them for you.
