The view is simply stunning, but the view also depends on the time of the year. I was lucky to see some colours here whereas my friend who had visited this in Feb told me it was almost frozen (GOT way).

This grouping of falls is very beautiful. With two main falls and a third little one as well it was very beautiful from numerous angles. You can also easily visit from both sides, so definitely take the little bit of extra time to do so....More

Nature at its best. Wonderful. There is a cafe/gift shop at this location. WC facilities but they ask 200isk to use although this is paid into an honesty box.

Saw amazing Godafoss waterfalls. Fantastic place. Our tour guide took us walking around the area and there is a coffee shop here too for welcome warmth from the cold!

In my opinion the waterfall is the most beautiful and amazing when it’s snowing! It’s best to find a time to go there when there are the least of tourists trips going there so you can enjoy the natural without having people running around everywhere.

It would cost a serious amount of money - best option is to join an organised trip or hire a car for the day

Renting a car is also a good idea if you are a +4 people group.

For us it only took about 30 minutes as well. Definitely see Godafoss, for it was our favorite waterfall in all of Iceland!
