Myvatn LakeTour to Godafoss waterfall and Lake Myvatn with the highlight of the Northern Iceland

Godafoss, or “Waterfall of the Gods”  derives its name from the momentous occasion on which the Chieftan, Thorgeir of Ljósvatn, threw his Pagan Idols into the falls as a demonstration of his conversion to the Christian faith. Myvatn is famous for its abundant bird life - in fact, one of the largest concentrations of breeding ducks in the world can be found here. The surroundings are truly magnificent – the volcanic & geothermal features succeed in reminding the admiring tourist of the incredible forces that surge below the ground. The grotesque lava formations of Dimmuborgir have been forged into a maze of towers, castles & caves that resemble a fantastic giant’s playground. The area is considered one of the World’s natural wonders & is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist resorts.
