Take a journey into the Icelandic countryside, self-driving the sparsely populated Westfjords region. Isolated, rugged and wind-shorn: these are qualities that easily define the Westfjords in Iceland. But this lonely peninsula also harbours the unspoilt beauty of Iceland's more secluded landmarks. Explore the levels of the Dynjandi waterfalls, visit the bird cliffs of Látrabjarg and wait for the returning fishing boats in the harbours to unload the 'catch of the day'.

Driving in Iceland:
In regards to gravel roads; technically you’re not recommended to take a hire car on gravel roads, but in Iceland you may not have a choice. Some guesthouses are located on gravel roads and also on the east coast there’s a bit of the main road (number 1) that’s unsealed. Consider getting extra car insurance with gravel protection if it is something that might worry you.
The hire car cannot be driven in the Highlands area.
Please note: Due to limited availability of accommodation in certain areas of Iceland this summer, we may need to adjust overnight locations and driving distances in some tours.
