The Westfjords are one of the most breathtakingly beautiful and least-visited places in Iceland. Dramatic fjords cut deep into this corner of the country, and the landscape is dominated by steep mountains and hills. Jagged inlets sport their own jagged inlets in this rugged area where ferocious storms have gnawed the coastline into its rough form. 

Departing from the town of Ísafjörður, you will be driven along the scenic Skutulsfjörður inlet, through both valleys and mountains. Your destination is the inlet’s outermost point; Arnarnes cape. Your local guide and driver will take you along the rocky coast of this fjord, just 55 km from the Arctic Circle. 

The cape is a photographer’s heaven. There you can capture amazing photos of dramatic mountains rising from the tranquil coast. On a clear day, you’ll be able to see most of Ísafjarðardjúp fjord and all the way to Drangajökull glacier, the northernmost glacier in Iceland. 

You will then be taken through the old country road of Breiðadalsheiði, a tough and treacherous road for smaller cars, but an easy journey for you, for you will be travelling in a Super Jeep; a large 4x4 SUV that can get through most obstacles without any trouble. There you will get a spectacular view of the breathtaking beauty of the remote Westfjords.
