Waterfalls in Ljósvatn

Goðafoss

9.5/10

Goðafoss (islandski: Božji vodopad) je vodopad na rijeci Skjálfandafljót na sjeveru Islanda.

Hidrografija

Vodopad Goðafoss visok je 12 metara, širine 30 m u obliku potkove, nalazi se pored jezera Mývatna na Islandskoj visoravni. Nakon njega se rijeka dijeli u dva dijela i formira otok Hrútey.

Prema islandskim sagama legendarni Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði, lider islandskog Althinga od 985. do 1001. pobacao je svoje kipiće idola upravo u taj vodopad kad se Island preobratio na kršćanstvo 1000. godine, upravo zbog tog događaja je vodopad dobio svoje današnje ime.
