Here is a few words that hopefully will inspire you to do this project.
Close to the capital yet away from the bustle, West Iceland is a world where culture, nature and history complement each other, creating a unique experience.
This vast area consists of fjords, valleys, craters, glaciers, volcanoes and the much-loved phenomenon of wide open spaces. Travel through historical Borgarfjörður, home to most of the Icelandic sagas and their heroes, or venture close to the centre of the Earth at Snæfellsjökull glacier on the Snæfellsnes peninsula before crossing over to Dalir, cradle of the great explorers, Eirík the Red and his son, Leif the Lucky, the first European to set foot in America.
The short distances between popular destinations make it possible to enjoy the area at a comfortable pace all year round, so remember to slow down in West Iceland.
There is no time to cry boredom in West Iceland. The landscape and nature provide the perfect playground for visitors to the area.
Many hiking trails and walking paths criss-cross the area, leading from one highlight to the next.
Golf courses can be found all over West Iceland, each with its own level of difficulty, character and charm. But for those who prefer higher plains, glacier trips are offered up Langjökull and Snæfellsjökull at certain times of the year.
Boat trips are offered from various villages in the area, offering a chance to do some sea-angling and whale spotting or bird watching. The Icelandic horse can cross the mountains, rivers and valleys of West Iceland with ease, making horse riding a pleasurable experience.
Fresh water lakes and rivers are dotted all over the west, a good catch for the enthusiastic fisherman.
A good end (or start) to the day involves a long soak in the hot tub at one of the many heated swimming baths in West Iceland.
