Many of Iceland’s main attractions are located in the Westfjords. Hornstrandir, an uninhabited peninsula and nature reserve is located in the northwestern corner of the Westfjords and is a haven for the Arctic fox as well as a variety of birdlife. The bird cliff Látrabjarg, is located on the west side of the Westfjords. It hosts nearly half of the world’s population of some bird species and is the westernmost point of Europe. The majestic Dynjandi waterfall is another must-see in the region.
Tradition and heritage is significant in the region’s culture. The strong relation to the sea is evident the the regional cuisine and folklores also play a big role in the culture. The Westfjords are a unique wilderness and the perfect place for bird watching, spotting the arctic fox and other unique fauna in their natural habitats.
