If you’re thinking of traveling to Iceland, you’re probably overwhelmed by options. And quite honestly, you can’t go wrong—even just driving around is a treat. But if you’re particularly interested in experiencing a bit more of the off-the-beaten-path travel in Iceland, then you should head on up to the Westfjords.
This region of Iceland is only visited by 14% of tourists, so it feels much more untouched and uncharted. Any of the little hidden spots you find along your journey will feel even more special, and you’ll likely not encounter any unbearably large crowds like you might at places closer to Reykjavik. Plus! in the winters, it’s a prime northern lights viewing place. Here’s how you can include the Westfjords in your Iceland itinerary.
