I will be driving from Eastern Iceland ( Egilsstaðir) towards Dettifoss in late March.
1) Looking at this map vatnajokulsthjodgardur.is/english/… it appears my only option of seeing Dettifoss is to drive onto the so-called new road, road 862 north, and view the falls from the west side, correct?
2) How far is the walk or hike from parking area off Road 862 to area where you can see Dettifoss up close? Need hiking shoes / cleats?
3) I understand Dettifoss is the middle falls in a series of three falls: Dettifoss is 1 km downstream of the Selfoss and 2 km upstream of Hafragilsfoss along Jokulsa River. Is it possible to hike to either of this falls from Dettifoss easily in March? Is there a path / clear signage to do so?
Thank you and looking forward to some advice/pointers.
