Private Dettifoss Waterfall Tour from Lake Mývatn

Enjoy Europe's most powerful Waterfall on your own

Take a Private Dettifoss Waterfall tour and take all the time we want and need to fully experience the magic of the great Waterfall 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 your Lake Mývatn accommodation to Dettifoss 44m high and 100m wide, where a mass of water, mud and sand rumbles into Iceland’s most impressive canyon.  It is said that after seeing Dettifoss, Europe’s most powerful waterfall, up close and personal you will never be the same.
