Jokulsarglfur Reserve Iceland
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Jokulsarglfur Reserve

Northeast of the country, close to Grimsstadir, is Jokulsarglfur Reserve lodging the longest gorges in the island (Jökulsa gorges : 15.50 miles) and especially the most powerful waterfall in Europe (44 m high and 100 m wide). Access is easy from Husavik and Lake Myvatn. The path to the Reserve crosses the grey-coloured lunar landscape dotted with polished rocks. Before this path is a 20-minute walk footpath. Other less spectacular but also splendid falls are at a 10-minute walking distance downstream.
