http://www.icelandair.com/unique-iceland/unique-westfjords/ One of the more remote areas in Iceland, the Westfjords are a combination of striking nature and hard-working people. Formerly a region devoted almost exclusively to fisheries; now the resourceful inhabitants engage in various industries like tourism, fish farming, cultural events and more. In fact, the Westfjords are a prime example of a region where nature is the main force in shaping people’s way of life. With formidable mountain landscapes, narrow mountain passes and beautiful fjords, you come to appreciate just how hard-working and resourceful the people here are when you visit the Westfjords.

Learn some basics about the country, including what you have to do & see once you arrive, when it's best to travel and which food & drinks you definitely need to enjoy throughout your journey. ----------------------------------------------- Iceland has something for every traveller, no matter if you’re looking to relax or channel your inner thrill seeker. If you want to chill out then you must visit Blue Lagoon, the ultimate geothermal spa in the country, located in a lava field in Grindavik. Of course, there’s plenty of natural springs scattered throughout the country, many along the Reykjanes Peninsula. The rich minerals will leave your skin feeling brand new. Once you’re relaxed and ready for an adventure you’ll want to add a few hiking trails to your list of must-have experiences. Take a walk through Thingvellier National Park or the Latrabjarg Cliffs, go river rafting down Hvita River, snorkel through the Silfra ravine or even kayak between fjords in Ísafjörðu. Travelling along Iceland’s Ring Road (which covers the entire circumference of the country) will allow you to cross off these essential Icelandic bucket list items with ease. Booking a tour will ensure your trip is fun, flawless and stress-free: http://www.tourradar.com/d/iceland Remember to pack your waterproof hiking boots, waterproof rain jacket, swimsuit, flip flops, thin gloves, hiking socks, sunglasses, and a camera with extra batteries. Iceland’s currency is the Icelandic krona. The country is a mostly cashless society so don’t hesitate to back your debit and credit cards as they are likely to be accepted everywhere. Alcohol and restaurant meals can be more expensive than one might anticipate so bring enough cash to accommodate your needs. ---About Iceland--- Iceland, the land of fire and ice, exists on a remote island between Norway and Greenland and boasts a modest population of just over 300,000 people. You’ll soon discover that there are plenty of reasons to make your next vacation an Icelandic one. Roughly 10% of the country’s surface is covered by glaciers and there are 130 volcanoes spread throughout, 18 of which have erupted since the settlement of Iceland 1100 years ago. Nearly 60% of the nation’s entire population live in the capital city of Reykjavik and those who do not are scattered sparsely throughout its rural countryside. 🤟 Find your tour through Iceland: https://www.tourradar.com/d/Iceland?utm_source=Youtube&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=Iceland:+The+Ultimate+Travel+Guide+by+TourRadar+1/5+ST1809-Iceland&utm_content=YT+Description ℹ️ Learn more about Iceland: https://www.tourradar.com/travel-guide/Iceland?utm_source=Youtube&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=Iceland:+The+Ultimate+Travel+Guide+by+TourRadar+1/5+ST1809-Iceland&utm_content=YT+Description 🎬 Watch another video: "New Zealand: The Ultimate Travel Guide by TourRadar 5/5": https://youtu.be/_eMAXOp2PvA 📚 Visit us on Days to Come: "How to Photograph the Northern Lights with an iPhone, Smartphone or Camera": https://www.tourradar.com/days-to-come/how-to-photograph-northern-lights/?utm_source=Youtube&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=Iceland:+The+Ultimate+Travel+Guide+by+TourRadar+1/5+ST1809-Iceland&utm_content=YT+Description ✌️ Subscribe for more travel tips & inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/user/tourradar?sub_confirmation=1 🌍 #gotouring with TourRadar: https://www.tourradar.com ----------------------------------------------- 👫 Let’s get social!

English: In this video you see how to drive from the old part of Reykjavík, Iceland all the way through the suburbs and the neighbouring town of Mosfellsbær until you reach the main highway going towards Western and Northern Iceland (Road 1). In the last seconds of the video you come to a roundabout. To continue on road 1 to West- or North-Iceland you take the second exit, but if you want to drive towards Thingvellir (Þingvellir) or other places in Iceland's interior you'll need to take the first exit and get on road 36. Italiano: In questo video vedrai come guidare dalla parte vecchia di Reykjavik passando per i sobborghi e la città vicina Mosfellsbær fino alla periferia dell'area urbana. Alla fine del video arriviamo ad una rotonda. Per continuare verso Islanda occidentale o settentrionale sulla statale n.1 (la ring road) bisogna prendere la seconda uscita della rotonda. Ma per guidare verso Islanda centrale (per esempio verso Thingvellir o Geysir) bisogna prendere la prima uscita della rotonda sulla statale 36.
