Arnarfjörður is widely considered the most attractive fjord in the Westfjords because of its diverse landscape, magnificent mountains and the impressive waterfall of Dynjandi, one of the most beautiful cascades in Iceland.  

Admire the highest mountain in the Westfjords; Kaldbakur, and soak your feet in a remote hot springs pool surrounded by beautiful Icelandic nature. The great Dynjandi 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 falls, allowing visitors to come close enough to touch the water as it tumbles down into the depths. The lively nearby village of Bíldudalur boasts an active cultural life with The Sea Monster Museum, which illustrates tales of the sea monsters that played a central role in Icelandic folk culture for centuries.
