On a large peninsula in northwestern Iceland, the Westfjords are one of the most remote and least-visited parts of the country. Drive the winding, potholed roads and explore the jaw-dropping landscape, with its jagged cliffs, beaches, coastal fjords, central mountains and tiny fishing villages. In the Hornstrandir reserve in the far north, cairn-marked walking paths reveal bird life, Arctic foxes and ocean vistas. The Strandir coast is less visited still, with a mystical, end-of the-earth feel, geothermal springs and seaside hamlets. Take your time and you will discover one of the most breathtaking regions in the world.
