Visit Dynjandi waterfall and explore the stunning landscape of the Westfjords on this guided sightseeing tour from Ísafjörður.

Dynjandi is one of Iceland’s most impressive & majestic waterfalls, and one of the icons of The Westfjords. It is part of a tier of 7 waterfalls, each with their own name. The top tier is called Dynjandi which means “thunderous”.

This tour is the perfect option for seeing Dynjandi in a day trip from Reykjavik, or if you are staying in Isafjordur without a car.

Small group tour departures on select dates.

We offer a comparable version of the same tour as a small group shore excursion on select dates which everyone is free to book seats on as well, please see here for availability on the shore excursion tour page.

It is also possible to book a private tour.

*On 1st and 2nd May the max on this tour is 14 participants.

We start the tour by driving straight to Dynjandi, the majestic icon of the Westfjords. We stop there for up to an hour to enjoy the wonderful views, and listen to the soothing sound of Dynjandi tumbling down the mountain in a series of seven waterfalls. The top tier is certainly the most impressive but each one of the other six is unique in its own right! We highly recommend doing the easy hike up to the top tier for a magnificent view.

On our way back we stop for 45 minutes at Hrafnseyri where you can enjoy light refreshments, explore the traditional turf houses and church or visit the museum dedicated to Iceland's independence hero Jón Sigurðsson who was born in Hrafnseyri.

You will enjoy the fantastic landscape of the Westfjords all throughout the tour.
