Things to see and do around Patreksfjordur

Látrabjarg-The cliffs of all cliffs,is home to birds in unfathomable numbers. The Cliffs are the westernmost point of Iceland and Europe. One of the most visited tourist attraction in the Westfjords and are home to millions of birds, including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots and razorbills. It is Europe's largest bird cliff, 14 km long and up to 440m high.

The cliffs are easily accessible by car and when you're there, a walk along the cliffs awaits.

Rauðasandur,Or (Red Sand), is precisely that: a beach with red sand. Endless red sand. Well, not endless, but 10 km is a lot. The magnificent hues of the sand differ with daylight and weather, and the beach is the biggest pearl in a string of coves with sand ranging in colours from white through yellow through red to black, and in coarseness from very fine to sole-hurting chips of seashells.Large seals, both grey and common, play with their young's on the beach.It is a wonderful place to fill your soul and camera with memories.

The Heritage Museum at Hnjótur, Where you'll be able to see how the Icelandic nation lived through the ages.

Dynjandi waterfall is the biggest waterfall in the Westfjords and is for sure a jewel of the Westfjords it cascades for 100 meters and there are 6 other waterfalls below Dynjandi, which one passes on the way to the biggest waterfall.

The stranded steel ship Garðar BA 64 is thought to be the oldest steel ship in Iceland, built in Norway as a whaling vessel exactly one hundred years ago. It is situated at the end of the fjord-you can see it on your way to Latrabjarg or Rauðasandur.

The Pirate House: A newly opened exhibition located in an old smithy. It displays the stories of pirates that raided the Icelandic shoreline in the 15th and 16th century, recreating the atmosphere and experience of both the pirates and their victims.

Natural Hot Springs :In Iceland hot water springs from the earth. This pure energy is used for fish farming and heating the swimming pools. Bonuses to this geothermal activity are natural hot pools located around Iceland.

Sailing tours Are the perfect way of relaxing after a great day. Enjoy the extreme natural beauty of the tall cliff sides and the magnificent mountains and the beautiful scenery of Patreksfjörður.

Location description from owner

The Westfjords Region

The house is in a little town in the West Fords of Iceland called Patreksfjrur.

Time magazine compiled a list of the 24 world's best-kept secrets in travelling, of course the Westfjords of Iceland reach that list.

A little about the westfjords -It is untouched and almost uninhabited. The cliffs and valleys are packed with birds, the uninhabited fjords offer a moment of silence and tranquillity, and the Arctic fox proudly roams the mountains and inlets. The waterfalls are high and the streams pure. The distances are long and the fjords are deep. And then there area few places that you can go where there are no roads at all.

The Westfjords are a great place to watch the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) during the winter and equally fantastic to experience the midnight sun during the summer.

Iceland is the land of ice, fire and water,as the country is situated on a 'hot spot' on the earth, resulting in a lot of geothermal activity, there are also glaciers dotted all over the country. This mixture of geothermal activity, ice and fire, means that there are numerous hot springs and geysers all over the country.
Some of the hot springs are boiling hot but other ones have the perfect temperature to bathe in. These hot springs are equally popular with travelers.
On the shoreline nearby Flkalundur is located a natural hot pool where it's great to relax and look over the beautiful Vatnsfjrur and there is also another one just outside of the next town Tlknafjorur.
