More about the Tour

We start our Dynjandi and the Westfjords tour from Ísafjörður, driving straight to Dynjandi, through some spectacular scenery and two very different (and surprisingly interesting) tunnels, re-emerging on the shore of the Dynjandisvogur creek of Arnarfjörður, after which the waterfall is named.

Actually a series of seven waterfalls, cascading like a bridal veil from the edge of a cliff, Dynjandi is breathtaking. The river originates from Neðri Eyjavatn Lake, one of many on the Gláma moors, which were actually considered to be a glacier until the end of the 19th century.

We stop at Dynjandi for an hour so you have time to absorb the waterfall and landscape with all your senses. Whether you choose to view from sea level, or to hike the rocky trail to the top, spectacular views of the fjord and surrounding mountains await you – regardless of age or physical ability.

At 30km long, Arnarfjordur is one of the longest fjords in Iceland and is famed in folklore for being home to sea monsters.

On our way back, we stop for an hour at the charming Hrafnseyri farmstead. The place was home to Hrafn Sveinbjarnason, a legendary chieftain spoken of in the Icelandic Sagas, but is better known for being the birthplace of Jon Sigurdsson. Jon was the leader of the Icelandic independence movement and a founding father of the country, and his birthday is celebrated as the National Day.

Most importantly, you will enjoy the fantastic landscape of the Westfjords throughout the tour.

Both ways, we also pass what is geologically considered to be the oldest part of Iceland: Onundarfjordur fjord. Picturesque Onundarfjordur has a unique golden beach and dune system that are a protected eider duck nesting site.

Isafjordur town is in the smallest fjord, called Skutulsfjordur, but lacks nothing in the way of scenery, despite its compact size.
