Travelling through the West of Iceland is like travelling through the sets of your favourite fantasy movies. You can't see the rolling hills and imposing mountains without casually humming the Lord Of the Rings theme song to yourself as you go. The west is also home to some lesser known waterfalls and geothermal areas so the savvy traveller may want to head west to skip the crowds.
For years The Reykjavík Grapevine has worked on it's "Best Of Iceland" series where we highlight the best and brightest things to see and do across the country. Now we are peeling back the curtain and giving you a chance to follow in our footsteps. Everything you see below has won a Grapevine "Best of" award, these are hand-picked experiences that we have tried and tested ourselves so you know for certain that you will be having a great time.
