Brings you the best marine ecotourism experiences in Europe

You will find a little bit of everything in the Northwest of Iceland: an area where long valleys and peninsulas are interspersed with mountains, lava fields and small hills carved by powerful rivers. Here culture, nature and history manage to create the perfect experience.

The 100 km long Snæfellsnes Peninsula, with its fjords surrounded by sheer sea cliffs and golden beaches, and its volcanic peaks with lava flowing to the sea, is a fascinating landscape not to be missed. Further away, the Westfjords is probably Iceland’s best kept secret. Tourists are scarce here (only 10% of Iceland’s visitors ever see this region), which has preserved the region in a relatively unspoiled wilderness. Seabird-covered cliffs, dream beaches, roads barely making their way along fjords to little fishing villages… this should probably be your next stop!
