The landscape in this part of Iceland is vaster, steeper and more extreme, but with significantly less tourists. It is an Iceland begging to be explored, with a limitless, choose-your-own-adventure feel.
In recent years, Iceland has seen a dramatic increase in tourism. While this tourism boom has been crucial for the country's economy, it means that some areas can feel overrun by tourists. If you truly want to get off the beaten path, Iceland's Westfjords are the place to visit.
