Wesfjords coast, Iceland

West and Westfjords

Lava mixes with the crystal waters of Breioafjodur to make for an eclectic scene that is fantastic for walking or riding.

Iceland’s western region is home to landscapes of frozen lava, speckled with islands off the bay of Breioafjodur and the great expanses of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It’s also home to the remote Hornstrandir Reserve, where the Westfjords is best known for mountain biking, sea kayaking and sailing.

As a child I read voraciously so the seed of travel was planted by none other than Enid Blyton. Family holidays ran the gamut from icy dips in the early summer seas of Cornwall, to camel rides in north Africa, from Times Square to Tenerife. A GAP year upon leaving school cemented the travel bug. After graduating University and before stumbling, happily, into a career in the travel industry I spent a couple of glorious years exploring southern and east Africa, large swathes of South-east Asia, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

The excitement of travelling the world has always hugely appealed. Largely cemented from my first solo trip to Egypt and the Middle East. The crazy hustle and bustle of Cairo was a huge assault on the senses, scrambling through the claustrophobic tunnels of the Great pyramid took me out of my comfort zone and I was left humbled by the warm hospitality of the Nubian people in Aswan as we shared dinner together.
