THE BREIDARFJORDUR WINTER BREAK PROJECT IN WEST ICELAND
The Breidarfjordur Winter Break Project was started in spring 2013. The founders are around 32 companies within the Breidarfjordur Bay area. The companies are from different sections of tourism, such as accommodation, activity, restaurants and transportation. The idea is to create a platform for visitors to this area where all this information could be found, thereby ensuring a wonderful experience in this part of Iceland.
There is always strength in numbers, so the companies decided to join forces and created this project. The main focus is the off-season in Breidafjordur Iceland – autumn, winter and spring. The area of Breidarfjordur Bay is big, stretching from the south part of the West Fjords to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The region is very unique: Most typical features of Iceland can be found in the nature and geography of this area, such as mountains with different rock types, beaches with different coloured sands, high cliffs, thousands of small islands, hot springs, fields of lava, grass and moss, rivers, lakes and a large variety of fauna and flora. Breidafjordur Bay is the Mediterrainian og the north!
