Dettifoss Waterfall

Vatnajökull National Park in Northeast Iceland

Dettifoss, in Northeast Iceland's Vatnajökull National Park, is Europe's most powerful waterfall. With a 44-meter drop and a width of 100 meters, it thunders into the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon, surrounded by stark, volcanic landscapes. Fed by Vatnajökull glacier's meltwaters, Dettifoss is a raw embodiment of Iceland's dramatic wilderness, captivating visitors with its sheer force and natural beauty.

Aire Volador Advice

Given the travel time required to reach Dettifoss from other parts of Iceland, it's advisable to incorporate it into a broader itinerary of the North or as part of a complete ring road trip around Iceland. This allows for a more relaxed pace and the opportunity to see more of the country's diverse landscapes.
