The Westfjords is a large peninsula in northwestern Iceland and an administrative district. It is connected to the rest of Iceland by a 7-km-wide isthmus. The Westfjords are very mountainous; the coastline is heavily indented by dozens of fjords surrounded by steep hills. These indentations make roads very circuitous and communications by land difficult. In addition, many of the roads are closed by ice and snow for several months of the year. Before you come to Iceland, you should check our information center a read about driving in Iceland.
The cliffs at Látrabjarg comprise the longest bird cliff in the northern Atlantic Ocean and are at the westernmost point in Iceland. The Drangajökull glacier is located in the north of the peninsula and is the fifth-largest of the country but the only glacier in the region.
