Prepare to witness the sheer power of nature at one of Iceland's most stunning natural wonders: Dettifoss. With a drop of 147ft and a width of 328ft, this magnificent waterfall is a sight to behold as it thunders over a rocky precipice and sends plumes of mist into the air. As one of the most powerful in all of Europe, Dettifoss is an unforgettable display of nature's majesty. The surrounding landscape of Vatnajökull National Park only adds to the drama, with its rugged cliffs and churning rapids. It's no wonder that Dettifoss has been used as a filming location for a number of blockbuster movies,
including the sci-fi film Prometheus. For the best view of the falls, follow the well-maintained hiking trail that leads down to the riverbank, and be sure to bring your camera (plus a waterproof case), as the photo opportunities are endless.
