Skinandi is a nice wide waterfall in the north of Iceland, 50 kilometers south of Blönduós in the river Vatnsdalsá. The average flow of the river Vatnsdalsá is in summertime 8.500 liters/sec (8.5 m3/sec), which is quite impressive.

From Blönduós take road 1 to the south and take the exit to road 722 /Vatnsdalur and at the end of the road take the exit to the farm Forsæludalur (road 7215). The first waterfall you see is Stekkjarfoss, a small fall near the farm Forsæludalur.

After 2,5 kilometers you will see the second waterfall Dalfoss. From here you have to go further following the river for 1,2 kilometers to the Skessusfoss. Another 2 kilometers following the river Vatnsdalsá brings you to the Kerafoss and last but not least, another 600 meters further you will find the nice Rjukandi. On the way to Rjukandi you will find several other unnamed waterfalls in side canyons which are higher then the official named ones….

After Rjukandi it is another kilometer to Skinandi crossing a river.
