Enjoy a leisurely drive through striking volcanic landscapes to the magnificent cascading waterfall of Goðafoss.

As you head out of the city on a leisurely drive you can admire the typical Icelandic scenery as you make your way to the River Skjálfandafljót and the beautiful Goðafoss waterfall.

You’ll get lovely views of this voluminous cascade, which stands almost 40 feet high and stretches over 100 feet wide. The ‘Falls of the Gods’ earned its name when chieftain Thorgeir threw the pagan gods into the falls during Iceland’s conversion to Christianity in 1,000 AD.

Continuing your journey through the dramatic landscapes, you’ll return to Akureyri and visit the Botanical Gardens, for a relaxing stroll around the many species of attractive native and foreign florae.

Then admire the contrasting and varied architecture of the Akureyri, as you ride around the captivating, main highlights of the town.
