Dynjandi waterfall

Dynjandi, Iceland

The largest waterfall, located in a remote area of ​​the western fjords, is often called the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland (after all, like all waterfalls in Iceland). It is about 100 meters long and looks exactly like a wedding veil.

Dynjandi waterfall is located on the Westfjords and there is an unpaved road a which leads to this waterfall.

In translation, its name means thundering, which reflects the natural power of this 100-meter-high waterfall.

Dynjandi consists of seven cascades, which gradually expand. This waterfall is one of Iceland’s national natural monuments and is one of the most visited places in the area.

For me, probably the most beautiful waterfall in all of Iceland. Sure, we drove about 400km because of it, but seeing Westfjords, which is one of the oldest parts of the island, bathing in the Hellalaug spring and seeing Dynjandi as the icing on the cake, it was simply worth it.

From the parking lot you look uphill to the cascading beauty, from which leads the river with many other smaller waterfalls. Upstairs you get just below the waterfall, which is really huge live! In addition, thanks to the cascades, I personally felt as if the water was flowing slowly… 🙂
