What To Do in the Westfjords

The Westfjords are a stunning part of the country which many people skip on their way. With unspoiled nature, fjords, mountains and cliffs out of this world, making time for the Westfjords is highly recommended.


Similar to the Eastfjords, you will encounter steep mountains and deep fjords in the Westfjords. The largest town in the area is Ísafjörður which is worth a visit in the summer (roads are often closed in wintertime, although a winter-trip to the Westfjords is a great adventure). This area is also the gateway to the un-inhabited Hornstrandir Nature Reserve which offers some fantastic hiking and trekking in the summer time.
