Selfoss is a nice and beautiful waterfall in the North of Iceland. With a height of appr. 10 meters not the highest waterfall in the area but quit impressive to see.
Selfoss is located in Iceland's second largest river Jökulsá Fjollum (206 kilometers) fed by the glacier Vatnajökull. The muddy water squeezes itself through a narrow canyon with an average volume of 193 m3 per second and ends in the Arctic Ocean. The area is part of the Jökulsárgljúfur (glacier river gorge), since 1945 and one of the four National Parks of Iceland.
Selfoss is located near the most powerful waterfall in Europa, Dettifoss. From Selfoss it is a 20 minute walk (1 kilometer) to the north/downstream of the river.
