Favorite waterfall in Iceland

It is a hell of a trek to get here, but if you are in the Westfjords, you can't miss it. Definitely my favorite of all the many awesome Iceland waterfalls.

The top, biggest one comes down like a flowing white wedding gown, followed by several smaller ones below. The fact that it is (200 meters?) above you makes it that much more awesome.

Dynjandi falls was our last stop before heading to our accommodation for the night. After taking the long way round from the ferry, across some fairly hair raising gravel roads from Bildudalur (single lane, blind rises, dramatic drops to the fjord below) it was a relief to reach the falls. Dynjandi are a different experience from the waterfalls in the... More

Of all the places that I've been in this sublimely beautiful country, this is my personal favourite (I love waterfalls after all). There are 7 waterfalls in all, with the tallest being Dynjandi at 99m. Water cascades down a sloping cliff face rather than a precipitous drop like the other famous Icelandic waterfalls, creating a triangular curtain-like shape. The cascade... More
