Starting point
Reykjavík Domestic Airport

The Dettifall Waterfall Tour from Reykjavík is the perfect chance to fully experience the magic and power of the great Dettifoss Waterfall. We take our time to find the best sight for photographing depending on weather and other conditions during that particular day.

What to expect?


  • Transfer on your own to the domestic airport in Reykjavik and take an early morning flight to Akureyri. Your local expert guide will meet you at the Akureyri Domestic Airport. We start the tour, heading towards 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. We then return to Akureyri and catch the afternoon flight to Reykjavík.
