Join us this Thursday, March 4th at 3pm ET to learn about the Westfjords in Iceland during our special Facebook livestream event. Follow along as our hosts share details about Vestfjarðaleiðin and learn more about the stops along the breathtaking driving route.
If you look at a map of Iceland, you will see a hand that stretches from the North West towards Greenland. That is the Westfjords peninsula, known for its beautiful views, diverse wildlife, and overall character and charm.
One of the best ways to view Westfjords’ spectacular beauty is Vestfjarðaleiðin, or Westfjords Way, a 950km driving route that surrounds the peninsula. Vestfjarðaleiðin twists and turns along the land, leading through mountain passes and across grand vistas. Visitors will experience beautiful sea and mountain views, close interactions with whales, seals, and puffins, and will be drawn into the Westfjords people’s history. No matter the time of year, Westfjords Way offers a truly unforgettable experience.
Tune into the livestream on our Facebook page for a unique tour of this Icelandic treasure and let us know your favorite spot along Vestfjarðaleiðin on Twitter using #TheWestfjordsWay.
