The North West of Iceland is a very diverse territory, here you can expect to find a great variety of landscapes. Borgafjörður and the western part of this area were chosen one of the top ten regions to visit in 2016 by The Lonely Planet. Here you can find Hraunfossar and Barnafossar waterfalls, Snæfellsjökull and Langjökull glaciers, Snæfellsnet peninsula and much, much more. Vatnsnes is a fantastic region to explore when traveling to the Noth of Iceland. Hvítserkur basalt stack rising from the ocean just off the coast and Iceland’s biggest seal colonies are among the attractions found in Vatnsnes peninsula.

The West fjords peninsula has been a growing in popularity amongst tourists in the past years, but you can still find the serenity in the deep fjords beneath the steep mountains. The north of Iceland is largely built on fishery (like most of the country) and all the way along the coastline of Skagi and Tröllaskagi small fishing villages oozing of history and charm welcome you. Try to make sure to stop at Hofsós and try the fabulous swimming pool.
