Located on the northern end of the Westfjords, this uninhabited peninsula is a great destination for hiking in the wilderness. There are dozens of deep fjords and spectacular sea cliffs along the coastline and open grasslands with wild flowers.
Arctic foxes are often seen here; they are black in summer and white in winter. It’s a little difficult to get to, but once you’re there, you won’t regret it. The scenery is amazing and makes up for the trip. You can get to Hornstrandir either by boat or by foot. Between June and August, boats run from Drangsnes and Ísafjörður.
