Experience the Icelandic Westfjords
- Natural Remote Paradise
The Icelandic Westfjords are leaving a big impression on tourists because of their beautiful landscape and special culture. The solitude, stillness and untouched nature are making them an insider tip for visitors. Please give me the opportunity to introduce you and bring you closer to my adopted home.
You can visit any time of the year because all seasons offer different interesting experiences of our country.
A visit in the autumn or winter allows you a completely different experience of our country than in the summer months. The mostly mild autumn wins you over with its immense pallet of colours and invites you to collect berries and mushrooms. Then the nights are starting to get longer and in clear nights you already have a majestic display of northern lights.In the weeks coming up to Christmas you get to enjoy the magical Christmas light displays in town and on New Year Eve a big bonfire and fireworks are making the trip a special experience. Here you still get to experience white Christmas!
As the days start to get longer again, you’ll get to enjoy the bright snow covered landscapes which reflect the sun and are truly astonishing. This is the best time for cross-country skiing, snow walks or skiing down the mountains. The highlight of the skiing session is a special skiing week in Ísafjörður over the Easter holidays. On these days, the town is full of young people skiing during the day and enjoying the Rock festival in the evening.
