If you want to get off the beaten track in Iceland, the magical Westfjords are a wonderful place to visit. A hidden gem with breath-taking deep fjords, green valleys, hot springs and natural baths, eerie lava formations, waterfalls and out of this world tranquillity.

On this unique 4-day private tour by luxury jeep, you will explore the Westfjords of Iceland and the Snæfellsnes Peninsula. You will learn all about the history and the geology of these two very special and peculiar regions as you discover their dramatic landscapes.

The Westfjords are the best place in Iceland to find some solitude.
