In 2010 the Lonely Planet listed the West Fjords region in Iceland in its top 10 places to go in the world. West Fjords is by far the least visited region of Iceland, with only 14 percent of the 750,000 foreign tourists visiting the region*.
The reason is quite simple, the main tourist route does a circuit of the main island, but does not include this peninsular which sits at the top north west of Iceland, standing out like a cockerel’s comb. The perfect place to get away from it all and just take in the scenery.
Of course part of my objective with this post is to make the Scot in Norway drool as he looks forward to his own trip to Iceland.
For those interested this image was taken just outside Flateyri on the Onundarfjordur.
