On in the Jökulsa a Fjöllum river, most impressive Dettifos is Europe's largest waterfall. It drops 44 meters (144 feet) into a long canyon. There is a spray of water one hundred meter away from the waterfall and a thunderous sound heard at least 1 kilometer away. You have better have waterproof clothes, otherwise, you will be rapidly soaked!
