Dynjandi or Fjallfoss waterfall is the biggest waterfall in the Westfjords and is for sure the Bridal Veil of Westfjords. There are 6 other waterfalls below Dynjandi, which one passes on the way to the biggest waterfall. The names of the other waterfalls are, from above: Hæstahjallafoss, Strompgljúfrafoss, Göngumannafoss, Hrísvaðsfoss, Hundafoss and Bæjarfoss, which is also called Sjófoss. "Foss" is the Icelandic name for a waterfall.
To get to Dynjandi there is a bit of a hike and on the way up are all these smaller waterfalls. There is a man-made path leading up to the waterfalls and quite a climb getting up to Dynjandi. Volunteers made the path back in 1996.
