The top, biggest one comes down like a flowing white wedding gown, followed by several smaller ones below. The fact that it is (200 meters?) above you makes it that much more awesome.

Dynjandi falls was our last stop before heading to our accommodation for the night. After taking the long way round from the ferry, across some fairly hair raising gravel roads from Bildudalur (single lane, blind rises, dramatic drops to the fjord below) it was a relief to reach the falls. Dynjandi are a different experience from the waterfalls in the... More

Of all the places that I've been in this sublimely beautiful country, this is my personal favourite (I love waterfalls after all). There are 7 waterfalls in all, with the tallest being Dynjandi at 99m. Water cascades down a sloping cliff face rather than a precipitous drop like the other famous Icelandic waterfalls, creating a triangular curtain-like shape. The cascade... More

I am a waterfall enthusiast - and as we all know, there a billion waterfalls in Iceland!! - but this one topped them all for me! If you're coming from the south, as you come around the bend you can see it in the corner of your eye. As you get closer you are able to see just how tall... More

This was one of best waterfalls I saw in the Westfjords of Iceland. Well worth the visit and the hike up to it.

Our tour (Wildwest Fjords)gave us 1 hour here which was good if wanted walk to the top for the best pictures. The ride over the gravel road to get here over the mountain provide great views, and...

Dynjandi was definitely the crown jewel of waterfalls among those we saw when we visited Iceland and the hallmark of sites in the Westfjords. We flew up for a day trip from Reykjavik on Air Iceland and booked a small group tour through Wild Westfjords. Dynjandi was the pinnacle in a group of eight falls, or “foss” in Icelandic. If...

This was about a 2 hour bus ride from Isafjordur, Iceland which was just a bonus. They tell us there will be a tunnel created that will cut the drive in half but that will eliminate some wonderful sights. As for the waterfalls, it may be one of the most beautiful falls I have personally seen in my life and... More
