But the road to the waterfall is just horrible and i can not advice normal family cars going there because its very bumpy gravel road and can do damage to your car and very dusty.

Worth the drive and is too amazing for words. Take your time, walk to other falls near. Make sure to fill up your tank before heading out. Not too many places to gas up. Be safe around edges of falls. Take extra camera batteries.

Iceland itself is a very beautiful country and something special are its waterfalls. Water of Dettifoss waterfall come out of the biggest Icelandic glacier and of course when you stand by it, you only hear the great noise of nature - falling water. I came there by the end of the day, when the surroundings was even more mysterious.

best waterfall ever - if you know the film "Prometheus" remember the beginning? That´s Dettifoss-Waterfall - one of the highlights of Iceland. If you have just one waterfall on your agenda let it be Dettifoss!
