Take time to explore Europe`s most powerful waterfall on a private tour of Dettifoss Waterfall. If you are looking for a thrilling and exhilarating experience of an outdoor adventure, then this tour is just it.

En route, we will make a stop at Lake Mývatn which is an unavoidable attraction site for any visitor given its reputation.

What to expect?

  • Dettifoss Waterfall Tour from Akureyri is the perfect tour to fully experience the magic and power of the great Dettifoss Waterfall. We take our time to find the best sights for photographing depending on weather and other conditions during that particular day.

  • The tour starts by going straight from Akureyri to Lake Mývatn where we make a shortstop, 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.
