Visit Westfjords

The Westfjords of Iceland are a breathtaking area located in the northwest corner of the country. The region is home to majestic fjords, breathtaking glaciers, and stunning wildlife. It is one of the most remote parts of Iceland, with some areas still accessible only by foot or boat.

One popular tourist destination in the area is Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, where visitors can take part in activities such as hiking and bird watching. The small village of Isafjordur is also a great place to explore, with its charming streets full of galleries and cafes.

An interesting historical fact about the Westfjords region is that it was once home to Europe's first permanent settlers from Norway who arrived around 871 AD. It was also an important fishing port during World War II due to its strategic location on Europe's northern coast.
