Flight to Iceland

Westfjords

This is probably the most exciting part of Iceland when it comes to experience Iceland at its best. Some call it the Wild-West, because of its pure and unspoiled nature. The area is still the most remote area of Iceland and probably the most exciting.Virtually separated from the rest of Iceland, this region remained in may ways "a world apart". Sparsely populated the regions nature is as wild as it was a hundred years ago. Majestic mountains, deep blue fjords, millions of birds, seal and air like champagne - all these attributes characterize the Westford's and local people still have a deep understanding for the nature they live in. The "natural" silence is the most impressing event for many travelers visiting the Westford's. The Westford's are a paradise for nature enthusiasts as for those who simply want to enjoy the pleasure of experiencing a place of complete silence.

Land and culture.

Geographically the Westford's are divided up into 4 areas: the southern and northern fjords, Hornstrandir nature reserve and the Strandir area. The north of the Westford's consists of the area from the northern part of Arnarfjordur through to the bottom of the "Djup" including the Hornstrandir area. Several fishing villages lie along the coast but for the large area it is very sparsely populated.
The region of Hornstrandir nature reserve, accessible only by boat, is a birdwatchers and hikes paradise. The area has been completely uninhabited from the 1950's. The northern part of the Westford's offers tourists a wide range of services, hotels, guesthouses, camping grounds as well as tours and excursions, boat tours and ferries.
The coastal region of Strandir is traditionally associated with magic and mystery and was formerly known as a place where outlaws sought refuge from the authorities. All this is reflected in the rugged coastline and the mountains which make it easy to believe in elves, trolls and other supernatural beings.
