Sprawling Reykjavík, the nation's nerve center and government seat, is home to half the island's population. On a bay overlooked by proud Mt. Esja (pronounced eh-shyuh), with its ever-changing hues, Reykjavík presents a colorful sight, its concrete houses painted in light colors and topped by vibrant red, blue, and green roofs. In contrast to the almost treeless countryside, Reykjavík has many tall, native birches, rowans, and willows, as well as imported aspen, pines, and spruces.Reykjavík's name comes from the Icelandic words for smoke, reykur, and bay, vík.
Patreksfjörður is named after St Patrick, spiritual guide of the first settler Orlygur Hrappsson. It’s the biggest town in the southern Westfjords with a population of 600. One of the oldest trading posts in the Westfjords, fishing has traditionally been the primary activity. Today it is the outstanding beauty of this remote area which attract visitors. Where the land meets the sea at the most westerly tip of The Westfjords is the imposing Látrabjarg Cliff. It really is a line of several cliffs, 14kms long and 440ms high, home to simply stunning birdlife.
Siglufjordur is one of Iceland’s most northerly towns and sits nestled at the foot of steep mountainsides. It was the capital of the herring fishery in recent history, but the towering mountain slopes kept this fjord and quaint town of roughly 1,200 residents secluded over the years. Today, two tunnels connect the town and fjord with the outside world, permitting easier access to the fantastic hiking and sailing opportunities in the vicinity. The herring museum in town claims to be the largest of its kind in Europe and covers the history of the once booming fishery.
The town of Húsavík sits below Húsavíkurfjall mountain on the eastern shore of Skjálfandi bay. Just above the town is lake Botnsvatn, a popular place for outings. The lake is just the right size for a nice hike around it. The lakes surroundings are rich in vegetation and bird life and trout is said to be abundant, though small. Húsavík harbour lies below the bank right in the heart of town. The harbour once boasted a large fishing fleet, bustling with the activity of fishermen.

Seyðisfjörður, a beautiful 19th-century Norwegian village on the east coast of Iceland, is regarded by many as one of Iceland's most picturesque towns, not only due to its impressive environment, but also because nowhere in Iceland has a community of old wooden buildings been preserved so well as here. Poet Matthías Johannessen called Seyðisfjörður a 'pearl enclosed in a shell'. The community owes its origins to foreign merchants, mainly Danes, who started trading in the fjord in the mid-19th century.

Situated in the southeastern part of Iceland, the little town of Djupivogur is one of the easiest spots in Iceland to reach from northern Europe. Evidence of this is apparent in the presence of a trading post built here as early as the 16th century. In the modern era, fishing is still important, but tourism is increasing more and more. Nearby Bulandsnes has a renowned bird sanctuary, and Papey Island just slightly to the east, is home to large colonies of Atlantic Puffins. Djupivogur is also not too far from Vatnajökull National Park.

It’s hard to imagine, as you stroll Heimaey’s idyllic streets of white wooden houses, that this island was literally torn apart by a spectacular volcanic eruption, just over 40 years ago. The fact that you can visit incredible Heimaey at all is something of a miracle – because the oozing lava of the Eldfell volcano threatened to seal the harbour off completely. Fortunately, its advance was halted by gallons of seawater, pumped onto it by the plucky islanders, who saved their fishing industry in the process.
