Patreksfjörður is a picturesque fishing village in the Westfjords that reestablishes your connection with nature. Rauðasandur’s multicolored sandy beach along the Atlantic offers you just the tranquility you need. Close by is Dynjandi, the thunderous waterfalls that splashes down from an elevation of over 100 m, perfect to capture some spectacular views. Látrabjarg, on the other hand, is a preferred bird-watching paradise where the endearing puffins roam freely. Summertime is ideal for a drive along the scenic 186-mile Golden Circle on to the Snæfellsnes Peninsula to witness the splendor of the volcanic landscape. When winter comes, the entire village of Patreksfjörður gets wrapped in a blanket of snow, revealing a completely different pristine side of it. This is also the ideal time to catch a tour to see the iconic Northern Lights. The thrill-seeker in you will also find plenty to do to get your adrenaline going, with seasonal activities like snowmobiling in winters and snorkeling in summers.
