Directions to Dynjandi
Dynjandi refers to a set of waterfalls situated within the Westfjords region of Iceland. It is made up of seven different waterfalls in total, each with its own name; Dynjandi, meaning “thunderous”, is the name for the biggest of the falls. It has a cumulative height of 100 metres, making it the biggest, and most spectacular waterfall in the country.
The somewhat dodgy road leading to Dynjandi is slightly treacherous, which keeps away the tour buses that are unable to reach the site. Nonetheless, the remote location is very much discovered by adventurous tourists looking to witness this impressive natural wonder. Facilities are good and include a picnic area, toilets and a camp site for those wishing to spend a few days exploring the region.
