Dettifoss is the strongest waterfall of all Europe in terms of flow power. It does not have a classical beauty as the other prominent waterfalls of Iceland due to the color of its water (brownish, greyish as the water comes from glaciers) and due to rocky surroundings however, it's definitely hypnotizing. I could have watched the water falling for hours and got hypnotized: it's that strong! From the parking lot (where there are no facilities other than toilets), you have to walk through moon like terrain (which used to be the old part of the river, deviated after an earthquake) for around 5 minutes. While walking you can hear the voice of powerfull waterfall yet you can not see it and you make a couple of more steps and all of a sudden majestic waterfall is in front of you. It's definitely one of the must sees of Iceland
