In a land blessed with thousands of waterfalls, it is indeed a privilege to visit the one that many Icelanders claim is the most beautiful of all. Dynjandi Falls is your destination today.
From Ísafjorður, you'll set out on a panoramic drive through the breathtaking scenery of the Westfjords area. The route takes you across an unforgiving landscape of jagged mountain ridges and narrow passes. The coast is lined with steep slopes and deep fjords, where farms and villages huddle together on narrow strips of land that reluctantly yield a living for the hardy souls that tend them. Take advantage of a number of scenic photo opportunities along the way.
The Dynjandi waterfall itself features a tall upper cascade and tiered terraces, ending with a free-fall into the pool below. Your guide will lead you on a walk up to the falls for a closer view.
Next, acquaint yourself with beautiful Suðureyri village -- a destination that feels like you have it all to yourself. In Suðureyri, it's all about fish. This is your chance to hear about life at the edge of the Arctic Circle and to see for yourself how this thriving community processes Iceland's ocean bounty. Enjoy a taste of fresh fish while listening to local stories. Learn how Iceland's first-class export produce can be on your dinner plate in North America just 36 hours after leaving the icy-cold Atlantic Ocean. It might also surprise you to hear that sustainability is king here -- this small, forward-thinking village has an eye on the future at all times.
Due to Ísafjörður's remoteness and the scarcity of professional guides, all guiding is handled by locals; some are not professional, but all have great experience in guiding and extensive knowledge of the area. Some walking is required, mainly on paved flat surfaces, with some inclines and a few steps, as well as a few gravel paths and uneven surfaces. Approximate distance covered on foot is one mile. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations. It is essential that you wear warm,
layered clothing to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion; outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. Wear sturdy non-skid walking shoes. Parents traveling with children under the age of 3 must rent a child's car seat from the tour operator; please see the Shore Excursions team on board. You cannot use your child's car seat from home in Iceland.
