Depart Husavik and head towards the gurgling purple and yellow sulphur cauldrons at the high temperature thermal field of Namaskard, which are so hot that they actually boil.
After exploring the geothermal field, we continue to Dimmuborgir lava labyrinth, a paradise of towering lava castles, natural arches and countless unexplored grottos. Driving along the shores of Lake Myvatn, our next stop is by the unique craters at Skutustadir.
Our last stop is Godafoss falls - one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. Here the waters of the Skjalfandafljot river falls from a height of 12 m over a width of 30 m.
Legend has it that in the year 1000, at the Thingvellir legislative assembly, Thorgeir of Ljosavatn, a pagan priest and chieftain, was given the authority to decide which religion was to be practiced by Icelanders. He decided that, while pagans could still practice their religion privately, Christianity was to be the official religion of Iceland. Upon his return home, and after converting himself to Christianity, he took the statues of the pagan gods he used to worship and threw them into the waterfall as a symbolic gesture. From then on, the waterfall was named Godafoss (Waterfall of the Gods).
