Sunday Special – Dettifoss Falls, Iceland

My apologies for not posting this yesterday. Since it is (Canadian) Thanksgiving today let’s consider it a Thanksgiving post 🙂

To date, my only experience with Iceland has been a quick flight connection while enroute to Manchester, England. It was December and pitch black at 8:30 a.m. So of course this will have to change. Until then let’s be armchair travelers to Dettifoss Falls.

Considered to be the most powerful waterfall in Europe, Dettifoss Falls looks as stunning as the power it commands. Located in JökulsárgljĂşfur National Park on the northeast of Iceland this park draws people from all around to see its natural beauty. The fall’s span of 100 m (330 ft) and a drop of 45 m (150 ft) makes it the largest waterfall in Iceland. Access to the falls are best from the east where there is a paved road and maintained footpath along with park staff. In addition to the falls the park has numerous hiking trails for almost every skill level.  Dettifoss Falls is also part of Iceland’s Diamond Circle, a well-liked tourist route in northern Iceland. So pack your camera, hiking boots and be prepared to be wowed. I’m certain I would be.
