The great Dynjandi is the largest waterfall in the Westfjords, about 328 feet high and up to 200 feet 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.
