Dettifoss Waterfall | Vatnajökull National Park, Iceland

While Markus and I were in Iceland, we saw our fair share of waterfalls. The island is covered in them and after a while, we were a little over waterfalls. Despite seeing almost every waterfall in Iceland, there were two that were incredibly beautiful and unique. The first was Svartifoss and the other is Dettifoss.

The trek to Dettifoss was a bit annoying because there were it was icy with heaps of puddles and tons of tourists At first, I was annoyed and wasn't in the mood to go through all that for another waterfall. At one point, it was like we were being shuffled along with a swarm of bodies. When the falls first came into view, I knew I recognized it from somewhere and then it clicked. It was the setting for the opening scene of Prometheus.  As you can see from the photos below it was totally worth it. Dettifoss is absolutely incredible. Honestly, one of the best waterfalls in Iceland and a must see!
