The Westfjords in general is less populated and with fewer tourists, but Svalvogar is truly the road not taken.
It's hard to say what I liked most - the colours of the mountains, an old abandoned house, the rocky coastline, a lighthouse in the middle of nowhere.
It was really cool to go under the cliffs, and the blue blue creeks with waves crashing against them made for the perfect icing on the cake!

The Svalvogar trail is a rugged trail only accessible to super jeeps in the summer. The drive follows the beautiful coastline with dramatic mountains and towering cliffs. We even go "under the cliffs".
At the edge of the peninsula are some gorgeous creeks and a lone lighthouse. Fantastic views of the great Arnarfjordur.
This makes for a great day tour from Isafjordur.
