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...more
We have been to many of the more popular, and unknow waterfalls in Iceland, but WOW.. nothing really prepared us for Dynjandi. I had looked on google earth and google maps, so had a pretty good idea about the road in.. etc., but the reality...More
great waterfall in the westfjords, poor roads but worse a visit
it is not so easy to get there with a normal car (2WD) because the roads are not in a good condition...but nevertheless it is a great destination... there is a street above the...More
These beautiful waterfalls are apparently 99 metres high; at the top they are 30 metres wide which extends to 60 metres at the bottom. We were transfixed watching the vast amount of water as it tumbled to the ground. The walk up from the car...More
On our cruise stop at Isafjordur, we took a day trip to Dynjandi Waterfalls. Riding through gravel roads and mountain passes which provided nonstop gorgeous views of the various fjords and mountain passes, we reached the spectacular Dynjandi waterfalls after 1.5hours from the port.
This waterfall is definitely off the beaten path. It is reached by a gravel road with no guard rails and a significant drop. Think Denali Park Alaska bus ride. A road is being built with a tunnel to bypass this route. Will lose some of...More
Excellent day trip from Isafjordour - particularly the scenery on the drive to and from the Dynjandi, aside from the Waterfall itself. Would recommend usage of Wild Westfjords who use a small minibus.
Only criticism was that very good commentary was rather marred by other...More
There are many reasons why it is my favourite.
At first it is in the remote northeast part of Iceland. It isn't so easy to get there especially during rainy weather since road may be very rough and slippery.
The site isn't crowded, there is...More
A beautiful series of falls culminating in the huge Dynjandi, all easily accessible from a car park at the foot and with an excellent view of the fjord as well. Wear sensible shoes on a wet day.
There are lots of waterfalls in iceland but...More
We drove to Dynjandi from Ísafjördur, about 1 3/4 hours, a little twisty road at times, lots of climbing into the clouds. Well worth the drive, amazing site a several small and the one large waterfall. Trekking to the top requires a little fancy footwork...More
The falls is definitely a must see in the West Fjords of Iceland. It's a bit of a drive before we reach there, but it's worth since the views are stunning. The hike to the top is not easy especially for seniors. Again it's worth...More
It is mostly good road, but there are parts that are pretty rough. I think you should be able to do it in a car, but an SUV is much better. It is out in the middle of nowhere. There are restrooms there, but I believe they... More
It is mostly good road, but there are parts that are pretty rough. I think you should be able to do it in a car, but an SUV is much better. It is out in the middle of nowhere. There are restrooms there, but I believe they are only open in the summer. When we were there, they were locked. Not sure what the dates are that they are open.
