Add to Itinerary

A pickup at the cruise ship pier will begin this exciting day. En route to Dynjandi, your guide will make sure you have the opportunity to see the fantastic scenery of this entire area.

Known locally as "The Jewel of Westfjords", Dynjandi is the largest and by far, the most impressive and magnificent of all waterfalls in Westfjords! It is actually a series of 7 separate falls, each with it's own unique beauty. As you make your way to the top, a climb of over 330 feet on a paved path, there will be an observation platform and place to take a break at each of the lower falls. Do stop and enjoy each one's special features. Once you arrive at the very top, take in the spectacular view of the surrounding area.

Suddenly, the reason Icelanders have named the falls "thunderous" will be clear to you. Enjoy the roaring, yet calming sounds created by the rushing water as it makes its way down the rocks on its long journey to the sea. As the water continues on its way, it will divide and separate into one of the other falls.

Despite the power held within this force of nature, when viewed from below, the combination of the falling waters, tumbling together as they reach the bottom, are soft and reminiscent of a bridal veil.

After a delightful time at the falls, your driver will take you to Hrafnseyri, a perfect place to enjoy some free time before we return, it is both lovely and charming!

This group of stunning natural falls are a feast for the eyes!
