Dettifoss waterfall Tour


Dettifoss 4X4 Tour from lake Myvatn in the north of Iceland.

Come with us and witness the extreme power of the Dettifoss waterfall.

There are two other waterfalls in the Dettifoss area they are "Selfoss" and "Hafragilsfoss" and we will see them too if snow conditions allow.

From lake Myvatn we drive for about one hour to Vatnajokull national park. There we start off by visiting Hafragilsfoss if snow and road conditions allow. Hafragilsfoss is a 27m high waterfall on the edge of Jokulsa canyon where it is 120m deep .Super-jeep

From Dettifoss parking we hike for about 2-3 km to visit Selfoss an 11m high waterfall and Dettifoss and then return to the jeep.

This rough landscape of basalt pillars and waterfalls is like something from another world.

At the end of the tour it is optional to visit the Myvatn nature baths.
