15 Scenes From The Westfjords Of Iceland

Driving along the Westfjords of Iceland was the kind of journey where we felt like becoming part of the unspoilt, eternal landscape. It was the sound of the restless ocean, the whistle of the wind, the warmth of the sun and the calm majesty of the mountains that accompanied us on our way. We rarely met any people. But we met seals and puffins. We bumped into fabulous waterfalls and coastal views after each curve.

The region that amazed us the most in Iceland is probably the Westfjords. We’ve been playing with the thought of building a small cottage somewhere and tried to find the most picturesque waterfall. Oh, if we would have been built a house everywhere where we played this game… 😀 Well, let us at least show you some of those scenes and views:
