Hornstrandir

Iceland’s extreme northwest provides outdoor lovers with the ultimate in untouched nature at Hornstrandir Nature Reserve where unmarked hiking trails link the beautiful fjords and bays of this uninhabited area.

Bereft of civilization since the 1950s, Hornstrandir is completely off limits to all motorized traffic and a wonderful location to commune with wild nature. Located on the rim of the inhabitable world, it is both breathtakingly raw and astonishingly rich in vegetation, and a known location for sighting the normally elusive Arctic fox.
