Iceland’s Westfjords region has been named “the best kept secret of Iceland” and „the Alps of the North“, earning the prestigious “European Destination of Excellence Award” and listed by Lonely Planet as one of the 10 regions in the world to visit in 2011. On this tour you will see why the Westfjords are increasingly getting the long deserved attention. With only 7400 inhabitants in the region, each person has nearly a square mile of personal space, so there is ample room for visitors as well. While local culture is interesting, the wild nature and magnificent landscape is the Westfjords‘ main attraction. The region is untouched, almost uninhabited, coloured by the midnight sun during the summer. Life moves on a slower pace here. The steep cliffs are magnificent natural wonders by themselves, but packed with birds in the early summer season, the waterfalls are high, the streams pure, the deep fjords and valleys offer silence and tranquillity, the Arctic fox proudly roams the mountains and inlets.
On this exquisite THE BEST OF WESTFJORDS TOUR, you get to see the key attractions of the Westfjords. It is an easy tour in which everyone can take part, a small group tour of maximum 14 passengers. Total mileage in 4 days is about 500 km (300 miles), excluding domestic flight; plus leisure activities for maximum experience. Provided by a local tour guide/operator, WESTFJORDS ADVENTURES
