Iceland A – Ö
The seven regions of Iceland
There is something magical about the Westfjords, the region that could arguably be labelled “Iceland’s best kept secret.” Isolation has preserved the region in a relatively unspoiled wilderness, making it a must-see for any serious explorers.
It’s all about beautiful contrasts in the North, a land where long valleys and peninsulas are interspersed with big mountains, lava fields and smooth hills carved out by powerful rivers. Go big or go home!
If drifting through picturesque fjords from one warm town to the next is your cup of tea, head to the East. It is home to the country’s largest forest, lush farmlands and even the mysterious lake monster in Lagarfljot.
What’s so cool about Reykjanes? Not only is it where most visitors set foot in, a geothermal wonder and the home of the spectacular Blue Lagoon, but also a place where lighthouses outnumber villages.
If the regions were pop songs, the South would probably be the chart-topping hit, since it is renowned for its beauty and the home of the country’s most visited tourist attractions.
Looking for a crash course in Iceland? Head to the West, since you’ll find a little bit of everything there. It’s a world where diverse nature, culture and history complement each other, creating a unique experience.
Reykjavík is the natural starting point for any visit to Iceland, and not undeservedly so. The capital is world-renowned for its culture, history and natural beauty on all fronts.
