  • 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 :)
  • 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).
  • A reasonably short walk to a wonderful waterfall with many smaller waterfalls along the way. Not quite the same water volume as other Iceland waterfalls but definitely worth a visit.
  • Absolutely jaw dropping waterfall. One of the most beautiful waterfalls I've ever seen including those in Iceland. These falls alone are a good reason to visit the west fjords.
  • Absolutely stunning waterfall! Be sure to go there early to beat the crowd, not that it's too crowded in the afternoon but you get to enjoy the waterfall on your own. Also check the road conditions before driving there in winter to spring times as there will be snow in westfjord and the roads can be closed
