Waterfall Dettifoss Tour info
Visit the incredible Waterfall Dettifoss in the safe companionship of Local guides from Lake Mývatn. In this Super Jeep adventure, you will not only visit these incredible waterfalls but also learn of the rich local culture and traditions of the area. We drive east for about an hour from Lake Mývatn to visit three amazing and powerful waterfalls. We aim to visit the waterfalls from the East bank which is only accessible by Super Jeeps and experienced drivers. Safety is our prime motive in all tours, therefore, if weather conditions don’t permit we visit the falls from the West bank. Dettifoss Waterfall is the most powerful waterfall in Europe, a 45m high and 100m wide waterfall with such power that standing next to it is an experience you will never forget. The sound from it is enormous. A few minute walk from Dettifoss, the water smoothly falls down the columnar basalt to form Selfoss waterfall. Selfoss Waterfall is a beautiful calm waterfall, that shows the soft side and great contrast compared to the power of Dettifoss. On the edge of Jökulsá canyon falls Hafragilsfoss down 120m to form a spectacular waterfall. The rough landscape on the way and around the waterfalls is like from another world, a must visit part of Iceland. – At the end of the tour it is optional to visit the Mývatn nature baths.
