Private Dettifoss Waterfall Super Jeep from Akureyri

With few photos stops by Lake Mývatn

Take a Private Dettifoss Waterfall Super Jeep tour and take all the time we want and need to fully experience the magic of the great Dettifoss. We take our time to find the best sight for photographing depending on weather and other conditions during that particular day.

We start by going straight from Akureyri to Lake Mývatn where we make a short stop, and you get a chance to see the magnificent area. Then we drive towards Dettifoss Waterfall, going off the main road. We arrive at Jökulsá á Fjöllum glacier river,  where a mass of water, mud and sand rumbles into Iceland’s most impressive canyon from Vatnajökull Glacier.  Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe, 100m wide and with fall of 44m. There is a short walk from the parking lot to the best viewpoints of the waterfall, and adjacent waterfalls of Hafragilsfoss and Selfoss. If the ground is covered in snow (which it is usually in winter), we use snowshoes to make the hike easier.
