Westfjords, Iceland

The Westfjords or West Fjords is a large peninsula in northwestern Iceland and an administrative district. It lies on the Denmark Strait, facing the east coast of Greenland. It is connected to the rest of Iceland by a 7-km-wide isthmus between Gilsfjörður and Bitrufjörður.

The Westfjords of Iceland is much less travelled than most other corners of the country, due to their vastness and distance from ‘must-see’ destinations such as the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, Lake Mývatn, and the sites of the Golden Circle. This fact, however, says nothing about the incredible wonders to be found here.
