Visit West Iceland
Western Iceland is often overlooked in favour of the thundering waterfalls and hissing thermals that dominate the rest of the country. This is a quieter region, less populated, less visited and so one of the best kept secrets in Iceland.
This small fertile corner of the country gushes with cool rivers and streams attracting hundreds of spawning salmon. At Hraunfossar clear water emerges from within seemingly solid rock in an intricate network of cascades, while beneath the ground some of the largest lava caves in Iceland lie hidden.
The main attraction in western Iceland is the Snæfellsjökull National Park and its surrounding peninsula. The popularity of the isolated Western Fjords are also on the increase as visitors seek out ever more secluded retreats.
