We get close to Kaldbakur, the highest mountain in Westfjords and might hike the top to enjoy incomparable scenery, weather and road conditions permitting. Alternatively we take the old winding main road through Hrafnseyrarheiði, which is closed for 6-8 months every year due to snow. We stop at the unique Dynjandi waterfall, one of Iceland's most beautiful waterfalls and the largest in the Westfjords, ca. 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. Various stops and refreshments on our way.
