Simple walk between two great waterfalls. Easy to navigate and nice way to avoid the crowds at Dettifoss

Once you get to the trailhead, there is a short easy hike to Dettifoss. Just when you think it can't get any better, take a footpath to Selfoss. In my opinion, Selfoss is more spectacular. Look at all the pics and just understand they're MUCH better in person! If you have the time, thee are not to be missed while in Iceland. I believe they are at least six hours or more away from Reykjavic so it's a long full day or an overnight stay (as we did) somewhere else.
