I visited Godafoss back in November on a crazy day trip from Reykjavik. It was a 600 mile round trip involving mountain passes and steep and windy back roads. To do it in a day was ambitious but it paid off, I got to see Godafoss and the northern lights.
Visiting Godafoss again today was so different. At -5°C (24 farenheit) there was a nip in the air and the drive from Akureyri on compacted snow and ice was fun. I’m getting the hang of that. It still seems crazy to be travelling at 60 mph on such a surface but that’s how the Icelanders do it and it seems to work out OK. You don’t see wrecked cars everywhere at any rate. The snow tyres are just amazing.
I’ve got a lot of pictures from today to process but here’s a little taster. It was for sights like this one that I decided to tackle Iceland in the middle of winter. It is incredible being here right now.
It’s difficult to gauge scale here but I’m working on that one, these falls are immense.. Catch up again in a few days..
