  • If you are viewing Dettifoss, you should not miss Selfoss only one-kilometer hike away. It is a beautiful waterfall and quite different although almost at the same spot in the same river. We at Hit Iceland prefer to recommend the eastern side of the river, especially for Selfoss waterfall.
  • Beautiful horseshoe waterfall. You can only see it from afar, though. The walking path to get to it was very nice too (it was in May), but a lot of the snow had melted and a large part of the path was completely flooded. We had to manage a workaround.
  • Very beautiful waterfall, but you have tot see it from the eastern side of the canyon. 'So take route 864, which is a gravel road in bad shape, perfectably doable with a normal car. Park at dettifoss and go by foot tot selfoss. You'll enjoy the marvellous view on the series of falls
  • Good waterfall but there are better ones in iceland
  • Two waterfalls within easy walking distance of one another. I was there the very first day of the year that the road was open so I practically had the entire place to myself. So pure and pristine. It was magical!
