Dynjandi is an impressive waterfall in the Westfjords – actually it’s the first of a series of cascading waterfalls. Dynjandi means thunderous, and it certainly is.
How we got there: We spent the previous night at a guesthouse in Bildudalur, a village of approximately 200 residents. The drive to Dynjandi is about 60 km, with several other sites along the way. A highlight was a stop at a small hot spring – which was HOT and not crowded.
- The cascading falls are very picturesque.
- It wasn’t crowded for our visit. We arrived late morning, and surprisingly, there were maybe 20-25 cars in the lot (you can count them from the top of the lookout).
- Like most Icelandic waterfalls, you can get close to the action.
- While not a long walk to the lookout area, there are many steps involved.
- Parking could be limited in busier times.
Where it ranks:
- Among the top five waterfalls that we visited in Iceland. Highly recommend Dynjandi and the Westfjords in general.
