Local nameSelfoss
LocationIceland, Iceland

Selfoss is a waterfall on the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum in the north of Iceland. The river drops over a number of waterfalls over about 30 km before flowing into Öxarfjörður, a bay of the Arctic Sea. The river originates as melt water from the glacier Vatnajökull and therefore the water flow varies depending on the season, the weather and volcanic activity.A few hundred meters downstream of the Selfoss waterfall, the Dettifoss waterfall is situated, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. The river falls 44 metres over a width of 100 metres. Below the falls, the river passes through a gorge which is part of the Jökulsárgljúfur National Park.
