A peninsula in northwestern Iceland on the Denmark Strait, the Westfjords face the east coast of Greenland. Their high steep mountains, deep fjords and valleys were carved by the ice age glaciers over16 million years ago. With birds like puffins, eagles, arctic terns and arctic foxes, this is where Iceland’s dramatic landscapes come to a riveting climax as mass tourism disappears, with only about 10% of Iceland’s visitors ever seeing the region. Jagged bird cliffs and broad multihued dream beaches flank the south, and rutted dirt roads snake north along jaw-dropping coastal fjords and over immense central mountains. Reykhólar and Barðaströnd on the shore of the south coast of the Westfjords, are characterized by many bays separated by high mountains and narrow stretches of coastal lowland and, in many places, sheer cliffs. Located north of the peninsula, Drangajökull is the fifth largest glacier of Iceland and close by, the cliffs of the longest bird cliff in the northern Atlantic Ocean, Látrabjarg, are home to millions of breeding puffins, guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes and fulmars. Jökulfirdir and Hornstrandir are home to cairn-marked walking paths revealing bird life, arctic foxes and ocean vistas crowns the quiet region.
