Dettifoss, which translated means "bubbling waterfall," can rightly be considered not only the biggest waterfall in Iceland, but also the most powerful in Europe. The average cost of water here is 500 cubic meters per second. Impressions from waterfall did not concede impressions of Niagara.
This natural wonder is located in the north-eastern part of Iceland on the river with the name trudno vygovarivaemym Yekulsau-au-Fedlum. Waterfall height is 44 meters, which is 9 meters less than the Niagara Falls and its width - about 100 meters. The source of water in the river, which is the most powerful waterfall, a Vatnajökull glacier , which gradually melts.
Being close to the falls, you can feel the bumps in the way, and the sound of water may temporarily stun, that's why the first Icelandic settlers called it the "King of the waterfalls."
