Plan your trip

Vestfjarðaleiðin is a new touring route around Vestfirðir and Dalir. It was launched in October 2020 when the new Dýrafjarðargöng tunnel opened up, linking the northern part of the Westfjords to the southern part and making it possible to travel between the two regions all year round, for the first time ever. It brings together the best the area has to offer into a new experience for visitors who want to discover the real Iceland away from the crowds further south, to spend time exploring the landscape, nature and the way of life.

Vestfjarðaleiðin (Icelandic for TheWestfjordsWay and pronounced ‘Vest-fyar-tha-lay-thin’) is a dramatic driving route which makes for a memorable road trip. It is real driving experience, twisting and turning, occasionally along gravel roads and through tunnels, giving visitors the freedom to choose where to stop and explore – at viewpoints, mountain tops, beaches or headlands.
