Dettifoss is a waterfall in Vatnajökull National Park in Northeast Iceland, and is reputed to be the most powerful waterfall in Europe. It is situated on the Jökulsá á Fjöllum river, which flows from the Vatnajökull glacier and collects water from a large area in Northeast Iceland. The falls are 100m wide and have a drop of 45m down to the Jökulsárgljúfur canyon. It is the largest waterfall in Europe in terms of volume discharge, having an average water flow of 193 m3/s.

Here is an image of a stamp depicting Dettifoss, designed by S. Jónsson, engraved and printed by Thomas De La Rue & Co., and issued by Iceland on April 4, 1956, Scott No. 293, Facit No. 341, SG No. 381.
