A pickup at the cruise ship pier will begin this exciting day. En route to Dynjandi, your guide will make sure you have the opportunity to see the fantastic scenery of this entire area.

Known locally as "The Jewel of Westfjords", Dynjandi is the largest and by far, the most impressive and magnificent of all waterfalls in Westfjords! It is actually a series of 7 separate falls, each with it's own unique beauty. As you make your way to the top, a climb of over 330 feet on a paved path, there will be an observation platform and place to take a break at each of the lower falls. Do stop and enjoy each one's special features. Once you arrive at the very top, take in the spectacular view of the surrounding area.

Suddenly, the reason Icelanders have named the falls "thunderous" will be clear to you. Enjoy the roaring, yet calming sounds created by the rushing water as it makes its way down the rocks on its long journey to the sea. As the water continues on its way, it will divide and separate into one of the other falls.

Despite the power held within this force of nature, when viewed from below, the combination of the falling waters, tumbling together as they reach the bottom, are soft and reminiscent of a bridal veil.

After a delightful time at the falls, your driver will take you to some of Westfjords beautiful beaches. Although much of the sand of Icelandic beaches is black, Westfjord's beach sands are golden or even pinkish, a beautiful place to take a stroll. Along the route are several lovely villages and charming towns and your guide will make sure you have the chance to stop and explore a bit before heading back to the cruise pier.

- Dress warmly and in layers as the weather can be changeable. A raincoat and waterproof hiking boots are recommended due to the spray from the falls.
- Although there are rest stops along the path, be aware you will be climbing over 300 vertical feet to get to the top of the highest waterfall.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
