Tucked away on Iceland's west coast, Hvalfjordur is a picturesque patchwork of stunning cliffs, tranquil forests and sparkling waterfalls – an ideal spot for nature lovers and adventure seekers alike. Take a scenic hike through the neighbouring mountains and you'll be rewarded with sweeping views of the fjord and its surroundings. Marvel at the majestic Glymur, Iceland's second-highest waterfall, which drops into the fjord and resembles something out of a fairy tale. Meander through a birch forest, cross a river on a log holding a rope and climb over picturesque hills to reach three different viewing points,
from which you can see the falls at various angles. But the magic of Hvalfjordur doesn't end here. If you're lucky, you might even spot a whale or two in the fjord's crystal-clear waters, which only adds to the already enchanting experience. And after a day of adventure, you can unwind in one of the nearby hot springs or try your hand at fishing for salmon.
