Dettifoss

The next stop of our first day in Iceland is at the Dettifoss waterfall. The waterfall is located about 20 north of the ring road No. 1 and is accessible on both sides. In west via road 862. We took the road no. 864 on the east side. A miserably bad old gravel road full of potholes. But it was worth it, even though the sun had completely disappeared now.
The Dettifoss is a waterfall in the northeast of Iceland. It is 44 meters high and over 100 meters wide, and is the most powerful waterfall in Europe for water displacement. The waterfall is located in Iceland's second largest glacial river Jökulsá á Fjöllum, coming from the Vatnajökull. The muddy water presses with a volume of more than 200 tons per second through the 100 meter high, 500 meter wide and 25 km long Jökulsárgljúfur canyon towards the Arctic Ocean.
