Dettifoss Waterfall Tour from Lake Mývatn is the perfect tour to fully experience the magic and power of the great Dettifoss Waterfall. We take our time to find the best sight for photographing depending on weather and other conditions during that particular day.
We drive towards Dettifoss Waterfall, going of the main road. When arriving 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.
