Greinasafni: Icelandic Times
The West Fjords - Remote and enthralling

Iceland’s West Fjords are a world apart. This sparsely populated region is characterised by dramatic fjords and towering angular cliffs that rise sharply from deep blue seas. And for those seeking to experience Icelandic nature in its purest form, this is the perfect place to visit. Local people retain a deep and passionate understanding of the land they live on. Their culture is quite unique, with echoes   of the past and yet a confident embracing of a cosmopolitan future. The latter is particularly evident in Isafjordur, the West Fjords’ main town and a great starting point from which to explore the area.
