Off the beaten path

For those with the luxury of time, consider visiting the remote Westfjords, where all of Iceland's natural splendors seem to converge. Here, each bend in the road reveals a vista more beautiful than the last, especially in the area around Dynjandi, where a prism-shaped waterfall that spills onto a scenic campground. Visitors will also encounter a Viking village and natural hot springs. Catch the ferry from Isafjordur or Bolungarvik up to the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve for days of blissful backpacking between sea cliffs that seem to cleave off at the end of the planet.
