Make your way to the highland desert, the Dettifoss waterfall and the Eastfjords. It covers much of the entire island, but this is not your typical desert. Instead of sand, it’s volcanic debris. Due to the land being so porous, the area is void of vegetation. Its dark and gloomy color invites your imagination to roam. Adventure from the desert to the second most powerful waterfall in Europe before heading to your accommodations for the night near the coast of the Eastfjords.
