- Gemlufell farm
- Dynjandi waterfall
Located at the innermost point of the Arnar Fjörð, the surroundings of Dynjandi waterfall are truly breathtaking even before considering the waterfall itself.
A leisurely 15-minute walk from the parking area along the trails brings you closer to the dominating presence of the falls. Along the way, you’ll encounter several smaller falls, building anticipation for the main attraction. Even from a distance, the view is mesmerizing.
The Icelandic word “dynjandi” translates to thunderous, pouring, or resounding, and it perfectly captures the essence of these falls. Multiple smaller waterfalls converge to create the grand spectacle of Dynjandi.
With a distinct appearance, the falls span 30 meters in width at the top, gradually widening to 60 meters at the bottom. From afar, it resembles a delicate white bridal veil, while up close, the sheer scale of this magnificent series of waterfalls leaves a lasting impression.

Life at this secluded homestead exudes tranquility, offering you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the serene ambiance while savoring complimentary tea, coffee, and a slice of the traditional Icelandic cake known as Hjónabandssæla. This delightful oat and rhubarb jam cake is fondly referred to as the “Happy Marriage cake.”
Following this stop, we will safely return you to your ship in Ísafjörður, where you can prepare for the continuation of your journey to your next destination.
