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.

A bit distant of the traditional route, especially if you are on a tight schedule, but it is definitively worth the visit. There is a small path that takes you up so you can get different views. To me, this is one of Iceland's most...More

Waterfall fatigue is a real possibility if you travel around Iceland for more than a few days, and yet the Dynjandi system manages to add a fresh twist with its multi-tiered, very large falls, along with several other smaller (individually-named) falls next to it. This...More

Stunning waterfall that can be seen for miles upon approach. There is a path to viewpoints up to the upper falls. It takes about 30 minutes round trip of continuous walking. Allow some time to linger and take pictures. Incredibly beautiful spot! There isn't much...More

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.

I am planning a trip to West Fjords in late March to see the lights. Would love to see this waterfall too. Is it possible to get to it in late March?

Hi, I suppose it will be possible but chilly. Best take a good equipped 4x4 car. Enjoy Iceland! Gaelle
Hi, we have about a week and will begin in Reyjkavik, will rent a car. We want to have 2, at most 3 hotels as 'base' for driving a rental car to see...waterfalls, Pthingvellir...as well as hit a few semi-remote areas. Should we go north to Akurei or to West Fiords area? I have been to Iceland but my husband has not. We both love geology and hiking and consider our best vacation so far together to be Yellowstone National oMark in Wyoming. Any advice? We will be in Iceland ist 1& half weeks of September.

We did it mid-June last year in a 2WD campervan and had no issues whatsoever.
