West Iceland is a region that should not be overlooked as it is home to some of Iceland’s most stunning natural wonders. The Snæfellsnes (Snæfellsnes) Peninsula, also known as Iceland in miniature, is a rugged and beautiful area that boasts an impressive collection of volcanoes, glaciers, waterfalls, moss fields, and black beaches. The Snæfellsjökull Glacier is a must-see attraction as it is said to be one of the world’s energy centers and was also featured in Jules Vern’s classic sci-fi novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth. The peninsula’s signature mountain, Kirkjufell, and Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall are also favorites of photographers. Stykkishólmur and Grundafjörður are beautiful fishing towns that served as filming locations for the movie Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and they are testaments to why the Snæfellsnes Peninsula is a hidden gem waiting to be explored.Borgarfjörður is another captivating destination in West Iceland that should not be missed. This area can be regarded as the setting of most of the Icelandic sagas, and its landscape, nature, and culture reflect this rich heritage. Deildartunguhver, the highest-flow hot spring in Europe, powers Krauma Geothermal Spa, and nearby is the stunning Hraunfossar, a series of waterfalls formed by rivulets streaming over a distance of about 900 meters through a lava field. Don’t miss the opportunity to explore this historic and picturesque region of Iceland.
