Dynjandi Waterfall & The Westfjords

Based on 2 traveller reviews

The majestic Dynjandi is one of Iceland's most stunning waterfalls.  We'll take you on a scenic drive from Ísafjörður via the picturesque fjord trio of Önundarfjörður, Dýrafjörður and Arnarfjörður. Dynjandi falls bears its name with pride. The name means 'The One who Thunders' in Icelandic, and you will understand why when you stand by this giant and hear the deafening roar of the water falling from the high Dynjandisheiði mountain. The voice of this waterfall can be heard throughout the fjord and up into the mountains.

We will stop for an approximate hour at Dynjandi falls and enjoy its beauty and the peace of its surroundings. You can take a short walk and read about the farm that once stood there, or visit each of the smaller waterfalls that together form the waterfall Dynjandi.  There will be plenty of time to do the easy hike to the symmetric top tier of the waterfall.

The three fjords you will visit are some of the most impressive fjords in Iceland, with their steep mountains and near to no lowland. They are filled with history and Sagas, all from the great and heroic tale of Gísli Súrsson, who fought his enemies in this area and earned the title of one of Iceland's toughest fighters, and then more modern tales. Visible from the fall is Hrafnseyri farm and church, where Jón Sigurðsson, the leader of Iceland's fight for independence was born.   

We offer special rates for children so this is a perfect family tour. You will have plenty of opportunities to create wonderful memories in this unique landscape of the Westfjords, and of course, you will have plenty of time to take some amazing photographs to immortalise your visit to this one-of-a-kind place.  

Don't miss out on one of Iceland's most incredible waterfalls. Check availability by choosing a date.
