Beautiful walk between two villages. Views were spectacular in both directions so coming back the way we came was not repetitive. On a windy day this could be less enjoyable. We hiked it with our two young children in backpacks.

Easy. Beautiful. Wet!!

Very easy nice hike along the coast and through the lava fields. Lovely views. Several iced patches but easily circumvented.

Absolutely gorgeous

This is a fantastically interesting trail geologically. We saw two seals swimming in the water during the beginning's coastal section, sat and watched them for about an hour. We also came across boat wreckage in that area. The trail gets and stays rocky for most of the way. It can be challenging to stay on the path as it is a bit vague at times. Many interesting rock formations keep this interesting, with consistent background scenery and a dome-shaped hill for flavor. The hike is a bit flat which I would consider it's only drawback.

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.
