Dynjandi Waterfall & Farm Tour from Ísafjörður Port
This tour starts in Ísafjörður, and it’s dedicated to Cruise passengers. Please check the calendar on the right side of the website for availability on a selected date; the departure times vary.
If you have one day or a few hours in Isafjordur, you should join this tour and visit the must-see in this area, the impressive Dynjandi waterfall. The scenic drive along coastal roads and mountain tunnels through the Westfjords is stunning and an experience in and of itself.
Once everyone is onboard, we head out of town and take the mountain tunnel of Vestfjarðagöng. On emerging from the tunnel on the other side of the mountain, we venture through a series of small villages, stunning fjords, and sheer-faced mountains before we reach Dynjandi.
From the parking area, it is a leisurely 20-minute walk over the trails toward the falls, which dominate the landscape here. You will pass several smaller falls along the way to the main attraction. Even if you don’t make it to the falls, the view from afar is still mesmeric.
The word “dynjandi” in Icelandic means thunderous or pouring. One can see at once why the falls here were named so, as several smaller waterfalls merge here to form the larger Dynjandi Falls.
It has a distinctive appearance, a narrow 30 meters wide at the top, and tapers to its full length of 60 meters at the bottom. Dynjandi resembles a white bridal veil when viewed from afar. Up close, one can’t help but be impressed by the scale of this magnificent series of waterfalls.
Gemlufell Traditional Icelandic Farm
After the jaw-dropping sites at Dynjandi, we visit the charming Gemlufell Farm, a typical Icelandic working farm situated in idyllic surroundings on the coastline of Dýrar Fjord. You can relax at this lovely place, enjoying complimentary tea, coffee, and a traditional Icelandic cake called Hjónabandssæla. This oat and rhubarb jam cake loosely translates as Happy Marriage cake!
After this stop, we return you to your ship in Ísafjörður.
