Dynjandi (also known as Fjallfoss) is the largest waterfall in the Westfjords region of Iceland and is considered to be one of the most impressive waterfalls in all of Iceland. The waterfall in made up of 7 waterfalls, each with its own name, one of which is Dynjandi. Dynjandi means “thunderous”. The total height of the waterfalls is about 100 m. There is also a nice campsite nearby--something to consider as the location is quite beautiful.

As others have mentioned, the drive here is quite harrowing. We spent a few days in the Westfjords and I did not get used to it at all. The waterfall is the mother of all waterfalls. It is HUGE and we felt so small in...More

The drive from Isafjordur is quite the experience, initially heading through the Vestfirdir tunnel, then traversing several hairpin turns and switchbacks while climbing up and down the mountain passes around the fjords.

The local geology of layers of lava flows creates a multi-tier waterfall effect. The water flow is spread out, enhancing the perceived volume of flow.

There are restrooms at Dynjandi (they ask a little fee, if you need to use them). Starting a few years ago, more and more attractions in Iceland have restrooms close by.
