Those wanting an in-depth introduction to the Westfjords should not let this opportunity pass them by. 

The Westfjords of Iceland is one of the most beautiful but least visited places in the country. Those making their way up there are rewarded with breathtaking scenery devoid of all crowds. On this tour, you’ll be picked up from a selected pickup location in the Westfjords by a local guide who will show you both the famous attractions as well as the hidden gems of this remote area.

You’ll travel the fjord Arnarfjörður where you’ll get to admire Kaldbakur, a tall and pointy mountain range towering over the road. This is the Westfjord region’s highest mountain at 998 metres tall.

At the bottom of Arnarfjörður, you’ll find the impressive Dynjandi waterfall, one of the country’s most photogenic falls. This 100-metre high waterfall is narrower at the top than at the bottom, resulting in a unique pyramid-shape. A hiking path will lead you up the central gorge of the waterfall, allowing you to touch the water as it tumbles down the cliffs.

You’ll also get to visit the area's charming villages. Bíldudalur is a vibrant town despite its remote locations. You’ll travel through the town and visit its Sea Monster Museum, where you learn about Icelandic folklore and mysteries. You’ll also visit Tálknafjörður, an idyllic fishing village known for its natural hot pots, swimming pool and rich birdlife.

You’ll make a few other stops along the way, seeing spectacular nature and learn about Iceland’s history. Of course, no tour in Iceland is complete without a visit to a natural hot spring, so make sure to bring a swimsuit and a towel.
