Arndarfjordur is one of the most scenic and breath-taking fjords in the Westfjords. It´s filled with diverese landscapes, stricking mountauins and the impressive waterfall Dynjandi, which is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland.

Dynjandi waterfall, is the largest waterfall in the Westfjords, about 100 meters high and up to 60 meters wide. A hiking path leads up to the central gorge of the waterfall, allowing visitors to come close enough to touch the water as it tumbles down into the depths.

Despite the isolation the nearby village Bíldudalur is vivid, with a high level of cultural life such as The Sea Monster Museum, witch demonstrates tales of sea monsters that played a colorful role in Icelandic folk culture for centuries. Tálknafjörður used to be a base for Dutch fishermen and merchants, who named it Greenfjord. The tidy fishing village is known for its natural hot pots, the swimming pool and rich bird life on the white sandbank.

Local guidance in English, transportation and admission fee to the Sea Monster Museum. 

Dress according to weather and err on the warm side, as the weather can change during the tour and we'll be crossing a couple of mountain passes on the way to Dynjandi.

To Bring:

- Waterproof hiking boots or similar shoes are recommended, we will be travelling on gravel roads and the walking  trails at Dynjandi can get wet even on a sunny day (due to the sprinkle from the waterfall)
- We recommend bringing your own packed lunch if you wish to have more than the light refreshments included
-Don´t forget your camera!
