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 which is Dynjandi. Dynjandi means “thunderous”. The total height of the waterfalls is about 100 m. There is also a nice campsite nearby--something to consider as the location is quite beautiful.

This was a stop on our tour of the Westfjords. This waterfall is absolutely beautiful. You start seeing it many miles away, and the different perspectives from the road and on the hike up are great fun. The climb up is not bad, but there...More

Hi, a VW 2WD will be sufficient to reach Dynjandi from Reykjavik if the weather keeps. Make sure to check on vedur.is that you won't encounter any snow or heavy rain. The drive is mostly on gravel with steep slopes, even... More
