"I find one of the most beautiful places by the rivers of Borgarfjörður, to be in the Fossatún area by the Grímsá river"

Gisli Sigurdsson, from the book Magic Spell of Land and History.

West Iceland was recently nominated “Best in Travel 2016” by the famous travel guide, Lonely Planet. In their nomination Lonely Planet notes that West Iceland´s versatile landscapes, rugged lava fields, thundering waterfalls and cloud-shrouded glaciers is a good example of what makes Iceland unique.
