Isafardjup is home to many inlets and isles teeming with seabirds. Isafjordur is created on a spit of flat land nestling below towering peaks of Eyrarfjall. It features an exclusive local maritime museum which contains 4 buildings built between 1736-1785, each housing artifacts of history of fishing in the area.

Hornstrandir (aka Hornvik) is the country's northernmost peninsula, covering  a land area of approx 580 km2 (220 ml2). It is located at Westfjords' northern end, and to the north of Jokulfirdir (5-fjords system) and to the northwest of Drangajokull (country's northernmost glacier).

Ísafjordur (translated as "fjord of ice") is in the northwestern Iceland. By population (around 2,600), it is the largest city in Westfjords. The municipality includes also nearby Hnífsdalur, Flateyri, Thingeyri and Sudureyri.
