Dynjandi is the collective name, meaning thunderous, for no less than seven waterfalls that tumble down the hillsides of Arnarfjordur. Spanning a depth of 100 metres in total, the waterfalls have a campsite close by, a perfect setting from which to ponder the power of water. And for hikers, the unmissable stop is
