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 11 m (36 ft)-high waterfall is Dettifoss, the most powerful waterfall in Europe. Below the falls, the river passes through a gorge which is part of the Jökulsárgljúfur National Park.
