Where are these waterfalls?

Deep in the remote Westfjords of Iceland, you will find the breathtakingly beautiful Dynjandi waterfall.

Dynjandi waterfall is the biggest waterfall in the Westfjords and truly deserves to be called the Jewel of the Westfjords and one of the most beautiful and majestic waterfall in Iceland.

Dynjandi, or Fjallfoss as it is often called, cascades some 99-100 meters, looking exactly like a beautiful bridal veil. On top, it is 30 meters wide and widens up to 60 meters at the bottom. 

There are 6 other waterfalls below Dynjandi, which one passes on the way up to the biggest waterfall. It is quite a scenic route with an elevation of some 200 meters up to the biggest waterfall.

The uppermost waterfall is 100 meters high.  You will recognize it from quite some distance, as it is reminiscent of a bridal veil because it is 30 meters in diameter on top and 60 meters in diameter at the bottom.  If you walk all the way to the top, you can stand quite near the beautiful bridal veil as the waterfall has a convenient flow and is never intimidating. 

Another name for this waterfall is The Mountain Fall, but Dynjandi is the original name that has also defined the names of many other places nearby, and no wonder.  It means Thunderous and indeed, the nearer you get, the clearer you will hear its thundering voice.
