Iceland’s Wild Westfjords: Happy Icelanders and Filthy Cars at the End of the World

Iceland’s Westfjords dangle like a giant bunch of grapes from the northwest fringe of this rugged island. Ferry to the End of the WorldI’m catching my ferry to the Westfjords from the main town of Snæfellsnes, Stykkishólmur. My drive today connects Patreksfjörður (hub of the southern Westfjords) to Ísafjörður (capital of the northern Westfjords). But before leaving the Westfjords, I drive 15 minutes to Súðavík, on the next fjord over. I was in the Westfjords writing a brand-new chapter for our Rick Steves Iceland guidebook; the second edition (with the Westfjords) is available in April 2020.
