Dynjandi waterfall is known as the most beautiful attraction of Westfjords. Dynjandi is the biggest waterfall in the region. Also known as Fjallfoss, it is the first in a series of 7 waterfalls with a cumulative height of 100 m, being 30 m wide at the top and 60 m wide at the base. While each of the waterfall beneath the main one on top is spectacular on its own, the cumulative effect of the seven falls is impressive and immersive. The sheer volume of water and its sound and power is surreal.
