Dynjandi is just one of those see-for-yourself type of things - and you should. And since it is off the standard tourist track you'll experience a more intimate moment than at other "must see" places in Iceland.

The photos you may see do not do it justice. It is quite magnificent. From the parking lot to the top of the trail is supposed to be 15 minutes, but that is a hearty walk. There are other falls to see along the way,...More

After reading reviews and seeing pictures, I was quite surprised by what was in front of me at Dynjandi. The falls were really big and powerful. You had a long walk uphill on a good path to get to the main waterfall, and there were...More

This is a series of waterfalls that get more amazing as you go up the hill. We saw someone in a wheelchair part way up, but it would not be possible to go up all the way due to the stairs. The midges were bad...More

We drove 31 kms of dusty unpaved gravel road in June from Flokalundur to Dynjandi. It is a beautiful scenic and winding road some 15% gradient with some no railings. We met a large truck and small sedans on the road without an issue. We...More

This waterfall was an unexpected wonderful surprise. I had seen pictures of the big, main waterfall. I knew there was a small fall along the ways, but was surprised there were several waterfalls along the trail up. Each of the waterfalls would have been beautiful...More

I have to say I was wondering if I would go “Oh another waterfall” but no these ones are impressive and easy to walk up beside. One thing I have been learning on our visit is that Iceland accepts danger is your responsibility so you...More

It was a long drive from Akureyri about 6 hours. We were nervous at first because of the distance and had no idea on how the roads would be like. Now we understand why the place is not easily accessible during winter. The good thing...More

I definitely wouldn't take a Taxi. A rental car would probably be the best. I have no idea if there are any tours going there. You might be able to just hire a local private guide.

It is mostly good road, but there are parts that are pretty rough. I think you should be able to do it in a car, but an SUV is much better. It is out in the middle of nowhere. There are restrooms there, but I believe they... More
