Iceland is a land of waterfalls. I've taken quite a lot of them, so I will be adding photos to this post with some short description:
Dettifoss is the most overwhelming waterfall I've ever seen. It is the largest waterfall in Europe. It's 100m wide and over 44m high. The river is called Jökulsá á Fjöllum. Check wiki if you are interested in more reading en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dettifos…
The Hraunfossar waterfalls consist of countless springs of clear water that emerge from under the edge of the lava field called Hallmundarhraun and flow into the river Hvítá. Surface water and meltwater from the glaciers runs between the lava layers and emerges to form these falls, which are about 1 km wide.
Skógafoss is a 62 metres (204 feet) high and 25m wide waterfall in southern Iceland. It lies just under the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
At the eastern side of the waterfall, a hiking and trekking trail leads up along the river to Þórsmörk. There are over 25 waterfalls above Skógafoss.
Goðafoss (waterfall of the gods) is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Iceland. It is located in the Mývatn district of North-Central Iceland. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters.
Gullfoss(Golden Falls) is a waterfall located in the canyon of Hvítá river in southwest Iceland.
About a kilometer above the falls the river turns sharply to the left and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase" and then falls in two stages (11 m and 21 m) into a canyon 32 m (105 ft) deep. The average amount of water running over this waterfall is 140 m³/s in the summertime and 80 m³/s in the wintertime.
If you travel to Iceland by ferry, Seyðisfjörður (Seydisfjördur) is the tow you arrive to. You can't see the town on the picture, it's hidden behind the ridge on the right. But the whole valley is amazing, all the mountains are green and there are tens of different waterfalls coming down to the sea.
