Dynjandi Waterfall
Although Gullfoss gets most of the tourists, Dynjandi waterfall is arguably one of the most breathtaking (and one of the biggest) in Iceland. Situated in the remote Westfjords (it’s sometimes described as the region’s ‘jewel’), its multiple cascades tumble some 328 feet creating a thunderous sound (dynjandi means 'thunderous' or 'resounding'). Impressively, they start at around 98 feet wide and spreading to 197 meters at the bottom, creating a shape that’s often said to resemble a bridal veil. There are a few more additional waterfalls below Dynjandi that help make the short (15-minute) hiking route up to the main fall even more picturesque. You can stand right behind if you don’t mind a splash of water.
