Iceland : Dettifoss, Ásbyrgi

En Français
The way to Dettifoss is really long, but that doesn't really matter because after that we can almost say that we have been on the moon.
Dettifoss is the most impressive waterfall in Europe. We can see the water at the bottom being projected up after the fall. Falling in there should be pretty painful, it's better not to try.
We then walked along the river Jökulsá á Fjöllum to go to the other waterfalls Selfoss and Hafragilsfoss. On the way we collect some volcanic red stones.

We decide to continue our travel to Ásbyrgi, it's a canyon with the form of a horse shoes, that's really impressive too. According to the legend it's the trace left on Earth by Odin's eight-legged horse.
We finally arrive to Húsavík where we will spend the night in the car due a storm.
