More about the Tour
Your tour starts with a short drive to the Godafoss waterfall. Nicknamed “Beauty” (with Dettifoss being the “Beast”), Godafoss is indeed one of the prettiest waterfalls in Iceland. Its name means “waterfall of the gods” as it is believed that idols of the old Gods were thrown into it when Iceland embraced Christianity in 1000 A.D.
We continue north to the fishing town of Husavik, which is reputed for being the whale watching capital of Iceland.
At the edge of the Skjalfandi Bay, the charming town has colourful houses, great a unique church and fantastic ocean views.
Further along the coast is the spectacular Asbyrgi canyon. Believed in folklore to be the footprint of Sleipnir, Odin’s eight-legged horse; it was formed thousands of years ago during catastrophic flooding of the Jokulsa a Fjollum river.
The forest trails and the Botnstjorn pond in the basin of the canyon are amongst Iceland’s most serene spots.
