Because of the mountains, a range of sports are on offer, for example hiking, Jeep tours on the glaciers and skiing. While staying in Western Fjords accommodation, you can ski from the summit of a mountain to the beach, all in one run and without taking your skis off.
Látrabjarg has become the most visited attraction in Western Fjords accommodation and is said to be the cliff of all cliffs. Here you can enjoy nature and get close to the different bird species the cliff is home to and get some great pictures too. Rauðisandur is another natural marvel. It means red sand and is just that. The hues range in colour, from red to yellow to black and there is nothing except a café around the beach so you can come here and really relax in tranquillity.
The geothermal pools in Iceland are famous and there are plenty to experience when staying in Western Fjords holiday apartments. Reykjanes in Ísafjarðadjúp is one and has naturally flowing hot spring water and steam bath. Why not stay in the pool at midnight during the winter months and enjoy the Northern Lights. In the summer you can experience the sunny nights in Western Fjords accommodation and watch the sun set and rise again in a matter of minutes. Krossneslaug in Árneshreppur is another open air pool and is located on Pebble Beach, where the Atlantic Ocean is only stopped by a wall a couple of metres away.
