Dynjandi Waterfall Bus Tour from Isafjordur

This journey will take us from Isafjordur through an underground tunnel to Onundarfjordur and to the beautiful village Þingeyri. Then we‘ll make our way up the steep and narrow Hrafnseyrarheidi Heath road to Arnarfjordur where the thunderous waterfall Dynjandi awaits us. We will stop there for aprox one hour so you can hike up to the base of this majestic waterfall. The waterfall is clearly visible from the parking lot so you don’t need to hike if you don’t want to. On our way back we will stop at Hrafnseyri cafe where you can buy coffee and cakes if you are interested and then drive by the farm Audkula, where there is a large colony of Eider Ducks during the breeding season. Who knows, maybe we will see King Eider in the nesting area. It’s very common to see Humpback whales on the fjord during the summer months.

As a solo traveller, I had the full attention of Gummi for the duration of my trip. A personally customized excursion into the Northwestern parts to the Snæfellsnes Peninsular. Although main priority on my agenda was a snowmobile trip and the northern lights. Neither of these
