Join this tour and experience one of the most remarkable wonders of Iceland’s Westfjords; the massive and majestic Dynjandi waterfall. This is the perfect expedition for those travelling by cruise to the town of Ísafjörður who would like to see Dynjandi waterfall without the hassle of renting a car and driving the mountainous passage there yourself.
Your expert local guide will pick you up directly from your cruise ship at the Ísafjörður cruise ship port. From Ísafjörður, you will travel into the heart of the wild and wonderful Westfjords, a region famous for its deep and dramatic fjords and astonishing landscapes.
Watch from your comfortable tour bus as you pass through stunning scenery to reach the destination of this tour; Dynjandi waterfall, the largest of its kind in the Westfjords.
Dynjandi falls from the great height of 100-metres in a trapezoidal fashion which has lead to people likening it to a bridal gown. The name ‘Dynjandi’ means thundering, and when you stand at the base of the falls, you can understand why as the noise generated by the cascade fills the whole valley.
If you should choose, it’s possible to hike to the top of Dynjandi. The waterfall is made up of seven distinct waterfalls that fall over seven tiers, and each one has its unique charm and views out into the surrounding fjords with naturally the best views being from the summit.
Before heading back to the capital of the Westfjords, Ísafjörður, your group will make a stop at the settlement of Hrafnseyri. This tiny township has a café and traditional turf houses to admire while you enjoy some refreshments in front of epic coastal views. You will then be driven back to Ísafjörður and back to your cruise ship.
Don’t miss this opportunity to make the most of your cruise landing in the Westfjords. Check availability by choosing a date.
The short hike up to Dynjandi is optional, you will still see the waterfall well without any hiking.
