The Western Fjords are the most remote area of Iceland and are a paradise for nature enthusiasts. This area can now be easily accessed by flying directly from Reykjavik to Isafjordur. The Western Fjords are one of the most breathtakingly beautiful and least visited corners of Iceland.
Due to its remoteness and relative lack of tourist traffic, there is less awareness of what sites the Westfjords hold. Many people are aware of the mighty Gullfoss waterfall in Iceland's southwest, but have never heard of Dynjandi on the Westfjords; the south coast black-sand-beach Reynisfjara is famous, but its pink-sand relative Rauðasandur on the Westfjords is virtually unknown.
Most travellers coming to Iceland are visiting to enjoy its diverse, unique and dramatic nature; these three adjectives can all be used to describe the Westfjords without a hint of exaggeration. Its natural attractions are some of the best in the country, whether you are seeking wildlife, waterfalls, beaches or hot springs, and its landscapes, of dramatic fjords and towering mountains, are simply awe-inspiring.
