Iceland - The Westfjords (PDF Chapter)
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. Leave plenty of time, unpaved roads weave around fjords and over pothole-pitted mountain passes, but the scenery is never short of breathtaking.
