  • Drove to Dynjandi in March. Waterfall was mostly frozen. roads were extremely dangerous, icy and snowy. Only go here during the winter if you know what you’re doing.
  • It's one of my favorite places in Iceland. The cascading waterfalls look absolutely majestic and can be spotted from quite far away. If you decide to stay on the parking lot you'll still have a wonderful view. If you decide to go up the hill to take a closer look at the individual waterfalls, you'll have to take a very good care of yourself and watch your step. As it's often the case in Iceland, the path is almost unsecured and the steps are pretty wild at times. Anyway, when you reach the upper most platform, you'll face Dynjandi and you'll get a marvelous view down. It's really worth the effort, but be very, very careful. Of course, expect some water vapor :)
  • The most beautiful waterfall in Iceland. The pictures don't do it justice as it is absolutely majestic standing in front of it. A little trail leads up to the Dynjandi along some other beautiful smaller falls. Plus you don't see any big tourist buses over here so it won't get overcrowded.
  • Beautiful waterfall! Absolutely stunning but difficult to drive to get to from Reykjavik in the winter!
  • We drove quite a long way for this site and I was afraid to get disappointed given I'd already seen quite a few waterfalls in Iceland at that point. However, the waterfall(s) really did not disappoint. Absolutely breathtaking and probably my favourite waterfall in all of Iceland. Would definitely recommend even if it's a long ride to get there (at least the drive was beautiful).
