Egilsstadir To Akureyri Drive
The northern part of Iceland especially around Lake Myvatn and Krafla is a geological wonderland. Here the stench of sulphurous fumes, lava fields, bubbling mud pools and steaming fumaroles escape from the heated ground. The region is volcanically active and tearing itself apart. It was spine chilling and exciting in equal measure and we couldn’t wait to witness the raw power of nature. Dettifoss is the most voluminous waterfall in Europe. The power of the waterfall is staggering. You can hear the falls before you can see it. Even from a distance, you can get soaked in its mist. In a country full of waterfalls, Dettifoss is unique and definitely worth a stop.
