Explore Iceland’s north and west coasts on this self-drive itinerary to discover a geological wonderland and an abundance of marine life including cetaceans and pelagic birds.

Starting on Iceland's north coast, your self-drive journey heads west with whale watching opportunities at Dalvík and Ólafsvík. With the benefit of having your own vehicle, explore at leisure the birdlife of Lake Mývatn and discover seal colonies on the Vatsnes and Snæfellsnes Peninsulas.

Aside from the rich cetacean and pelagic birdlife, uncover geological wonders of geysers, volcanoes, cascading waterfalls and fjords. At certain times of the year you may even witness the spectacular sight of the Northern Lights!
