Iceland travel guide

Iceland - The Westfjords (Chapter)

9th Edition May 2015

This is the The Westfjords chapter from Lonely Planet’s Iceland guidebook.

The Westfjords is where Iceland’s dramatic landscapes come to a riveting climax and where mass tourism disappears – only about 14% of Iceland’s visitors ever see the region. Unpaved roads weave in and out of fjords and over pothole-pitted mountain passes. The going is slow, but the scenery is never short of breathtaking, the local life always compelling. You may not want to leave.

  • watch tilting puffins swoop around crowded bird cliffs at Látrabjarg, then explore the neigh-bouring rosy beach Rauðasandur
  • maps
  • rove saw-toothed cliffs while spying on Arctic foxes in the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve
  • transport
  • kayak the fjords, then tip back a local draught beer in Ísafjörður, the Westfjords’ cosmopoli-tan capital
  • restaurants & accommodation
