Iceland Volcano Marathon

Wild Waterfalls

Iceland is home to more than 10.000 waterfalls, with each one seemingly more breathtaking than the last.
13 Aug | 5 hours | 80 EUR

In a canyon known as Jökulsárgljúfur, visitors can witness many of these magnificent waterfalls - including one of the most powerful waterfalls in Europe: Dettifoss. This waterfall is 45 meters high and an incredible 100 meters wide, and is the largest waterfall in Iceland in terms of water volume. Although you will have plenty of time to take photographs of Dettifoss, your first glimpse of this beastly wonder will be the best memory.

Within walking distance (around 1km) lies another breathtaking scene: the Selfoss waterfall, which cascades 11 meters down. Although Selfoss is not as tall, it is very wide and thus poses an awe-inspiring sight. The scenery around both these waterfalls is picture-perfect - they have, in fact, been featured in various Hollywood productions. 

The third waterfall that we will visit is called Hafragilsfoss, and is a true hidden gem in Iceland. Although most tourists overlook this spot, it provides a breathtaking view of the canyon and the mighty river that forms it - with the additional perk of being less crowded! We'll drive about 2 km up a dirt road and then take a short hike to an amazing view above the 27-meter high falls.
