Dettifoss waterfall Iceland, situated in northeastern Iceland, not far from Mývatn.

You see the falling Jökulsá á Fjöllum river, which comes from the Vatnajökull glacier and collects water from a large area in north-east Iceland. Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfalls in Europe, having a flow between 200.000 and 500.000 litres per second !!! The falls are 100 m wide and have a drop of 44 m down to the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon.

 

WOW...makes your hands shiver
