Selfoss is a waterfall in the river Jokulsa a Fjöllum in the north of Iceland which drops over some waterfalls about 30 km before flowing into Oxarfjordur, a bay of the Arctic Sea. A few hundred metres downstream of the Selfoss waterfall (11 m high), the Dettifoss waterfall is situated, the most powerful waterfall of Europe. 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. The river falls 44 m over a width of 100 m. Below the falls, the river passes through a gorge which is part of the Jokulsargljufur National Park.
