In the whole Westfjord region you will find around 12 villages. To visit all of them you need to drive a kind of circle, the Westfjord drive. If you also want to visit the tiny village Djúpavík at Strandir you need to take the Strandir road trip. Since most of the West Fjords is a large plateau, in an uninhabitable altitude, all of the towns and villages are located on the shore. The location of the towns and villages is also, because of the enormously fertile fishing grounds in the fjords, out by the shore. All of the towns and villages have convenient accommodation, a camping site, a gas station, a convenience store, a restaurant or a café, a swimming pool and some form of recreational activity, museums, and tours. In the Westfjords, you will also find some of the most spectacular landscape in Iceland. High and steep mountains that tower above you when driving the circle on the shoreline.
