How to arrive at Fosshóll

WHERE ARE WE LOCATED

Guesthouse Fosshóll is located by the Goðafoss gulley only 500 meters away from the Waterfall at the junction of Highway #1 and the Sprengisandur road. Therefore, it's an ideal stop, before or after, crossing Iceland's interior. Just a 35 minute drive East to Mývatn or North East to Húsavik or West to Akureyri.

HOW TO GET HERE

From Akureyri

  • Leave Akureyri on road no. 1 heading for Húsavík/Lake Mývatn.

From Húsavik

  • Leave Húsavík on road no. 85 heading for Akureyri.
  • After about 20 km then road no. 85 takes a left turn, do NOT take that turn, but continue into road no. 845.

Did you know that..

  • The Goðafoss (Icelandic: waterfall of the gods or waterfall of the goði) is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the Mývatn district of North-Central Iceland at the beginning of the Sprengisandur highland road. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters.
  • In the year 999 or 1000 the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. After his conversion it is said that upon returning from the Alþingi, Þorgeir threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall. Þorgeir's story is preserved in Ari Þorgilsson's Íslendingabók.
