Godafoss (Icelandic: waterfall of the gods or waterfall of the goði) was a spectactular sight to see on my 71st birthay!
In the year 999 or 1000 the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði, after a lot of thought made Christianity
the official religion of Iceland; the alternative being Paganism.
After his conversion it is said that upon returning from the Alþingi at Þingvellir, Þorgeir threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall.
