Godafoss is a river on the Skjalfandafljot river.

Skjálfandafljót is a glacier river that has its source at Vatnajökull, Europe's largest glacier. It is 180 kilometres long, making it the fourth-longest river in Iceland.

Explore this area while on a self drive tour in Iceland.

The water in the river is not solely glacial, much springwater pours into it from the Ódaðahraun lava field, hence there is much trout and salmon in it. Several beautiful waterfalls are found in Skjálfandafljót, i.e. Aldeyjarfoss, Hrafnabjargafoss and Goðafoss. The river is also highly popular for rafting.
