Self Drive Itineraries

westfjords self drive

 The Westfjords are just perfect for self-driving during spring, summer, and fall. But you want to do it at a slow pace. The roads in the Westfjords have earned a reputation for being rough, difficult and sometimes even dangerous to drive. It is safe to say, though, that they hardly live up to this reputation anymore. True, there are still some gravel roads that can be rough, but extensive road improvements along with new tunnels and bridges have completely changed the access to the area. The entire road #61 is now paved, and on-road #60 there is only some 130 km that are still gravel. To visit attractions such as Látrabjarg, Rauðasandur, and Norðurfjörður you will have to brave some gravel roads, but they are open for all types of cars throughout the summer. These roads are in reality the gate to unique adventure and once in a lifetime experiences.
