A visit to Dettifoss Waterfall is a unique experience. We travel from Akureyri towards Lake Mývatn and then onwards to the Icelandic Highland where 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.

From 16th June to 30th October we travel down the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon alongside a rural route, visiting iconic locations such as Dettifoss Waterfall, Hljóðaklettar Echo Cliffs, Ásbyrgi Canyon, the Arctic Coastline and Húsavík Village.
From 1st of November to 15th June we travel in a Super Jeep and if the ground is covered in snow (which it is usually in winter), we use snowshoes to make the hike to Dettifoss easier.
