Breathtakingly beautiful place. My granddaughter and I hiked to the summit and it was an exhilarating experience to stand close enough to the falls to feel the mist on our faces. It was magical. Turn around with your back to the falls and there is a gorgeous mountain view in front of you. An unforgettable moment in time for me.

an early misty and cloudy morning, all alone at this magnificent series of waterfallls and stunning views of the fjord felt like entering a different world. Untouched Iceland! The drive is a bumpy one but easy doable and the hike up to the top takes 20-30 minutes at slow pace to take in all the beauty. It is natural stone “stairs” so watch your step as it can be slippery in spots and not recommended for people with disabilities as there is no pavement to get up to the top. But even from the parking area and lower part of the falls the views are amazing.

This waterfall it difficult to miss as you will see it from some distance away when you drive from Isafjordur on Route 60 south. You can see why it is reckoned to be the most dramatic waterfall in the Westfjords. I envied those that were able to have a picnic there. We admired its wide and quite spectacular drop from the road, but we did not stop as there was heavy rain driven by a severe gale force wind, and we were fearful of the rain turning to snow. We had also seen many waterfalls on our anti-clockwise Ring Road Trip.

Dropping down from the moors into the valley is impressive enough, but the cloud of mist tells you something even more dramtic is coming. We brake for all water falls, so this was a clear destination. A great spot to sit and have lunch if ist not too crowded. Views are stunning. Easy short hike up to base of the larget fall, with several smaller cascades below.

This waterfall is so nice on pictures and it´s even nicer in reality! It´s really magical! It will take you about 15 minutes to get near to the waterfall right from quite large parking lot. There are also several nice and clean bathrooms there. Only a bit "shocking" experience for us was the amount of people here - Westfjords are a bit of a forgotten land but not here. There were suddenly out of nowhere plenty of people at this waterfall and 3 tourist buses in the parking. After we left this site, again almost nobody on the roads. Unbelievable :-)

Lots of waterfalls pepper the landscape of Iceland, and this one stands above the rest as an absolute must to. There are a dozen tiers, with the top one spilling over the cliff, and each one below unique and beautiful. There is a nice parking area, and the hike up is easy - you can stop anywhere along the way.

Visiting here was a worthwhile experience. The falls are gorgeous and one can hike quite a distance toward the top. The path is somewhat rugger at times but doable for most with a little care. The views from near the top are awesome as is every little view close up on the journey upward. Of all the natural sites we visited on our Icelandic journey, this was one of the best.

Beautiful falls near the main road in the West Fjords. The out-and-back hike was 1.1 miles and took me 45 minutes.

The falls are amazing, there are actually 6 more falls leading up to the larger one. The walk is easy until near the top, when it gets very steep and slippery. The drive there from Isafjordur was steep, lots of construction, the usual no guard rails with crazy high drop offs. Drive slowly and carefully!

While Iceland has thousands of waterfalls, Dynjandi is definitely one to see. It's like a curtain flowing over the mountain and is different than the waterfalls in the Golden Circle / South Coast. While the view from the parking lot at the base is worth it by itself, it pays to hike up to get closer views. Stop along the way to enjoy the falls along the way as the view changes.
