ÍS: Dynjandi Waterfall

Dynjandi Waterfall, Iceland Dynjandi (aka Fjallfoss) is one of the most popular sites in the Westfjords. A few hours drive from Ísafjörður, it is a set of waterfalls, the crown glory of which is the largest in the Westfjords. The largest of the falls thunders down steps in the mountain created in the Ice Age. Hard as I tried, I couldn’t get a photo that really showed how enormous this waterfall is, even when I used my mom as a scale prop. Although a photo from my visit in August 2013 gives a good idea. We just stopped for a quick visit, but there is a lovely campground area at the base of the falls with water and toilets, if you fancy falling asleep to the sounds of glacial water rushing over a towering cliff.
