Anarfjordur is widely considered one of the most famous fjords in the Westfjords with its awe inspiring landscape, magnificent mountains and the great waterfall of Dynjandi. THe waterfall of Dynjandi measures upto 100m in height and 60m wide, making it the largest waterfall in the Westfjords. Visitors can enjoy the striking view of the water as it tumbles down its depth up close by a hiking path that leads to the central gorge of the waterfall. 

Bildudalnur, the nearby village, despite being isolated, is vibrant and brimming with Icelandic culture and history. It hosts the Sea Monster Museum which features tales of remarkable creatures  that played a colourful role in Icelandic folk culture for centuries through action packed multimedia displays and interactive exhibits. 

Tálknafjörður was once a base for Dutch fishermen and merchants, who named it Greenfjord. The tidy fishing village is celebrated for its natural hot pots, the swimming pool and rich bird life on immaculate the white sand beach. 

We then visit Raven Floki’s scenic point, a place of historical significance to Iceland. Raven-Flóki was the first Norseman to sail to Iceland in the year 865 AD, using three ravens to navigate his way to the uninhabited island. He came ashore in Vatnsfjörður and climbed up a mountain from which he spotted a large fjord full of ice. Consequently he named the entire land Iceland.
