Experience the magical power of the great Dettifoss Waterfall on this 5-hour tour. On this tour, we will ensure that you have great photographic memories of the site by finding the best spots. Also, en route, we will make stopovers at other equally impressive and attractive sites. One of the top attractions you will find on this tour is Lake Mývatn. We will also take a short walk to see the nearby waterfalls of Hafragilsfoss and Selfoss.

What to expect?


  • The tour starts by going straight from Akureyri to Lake Mývatn where we make a short stop, and you get a chance to see the magnificent area. Then we drive towards Dettifoss Waterfall, going off the main road. We arrive at Jökulsá á Fjöllum glacier river, where a mass of water, mud and sand rumbles into Iceland’s most impressive canyon from Vatnajökull Glacier. Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe, 100m wide and with fall of 44m. There is a short walk from the parking lot to the best viewpoints of the waterfall, and adjacent waterfalls of Hafragilsfoss and Selfoss. If the ground is covered in snow (which it is usually in winter), we use snowshoes to make the hike easier.
