Isafjordur, Iceland

Ísafjördur is found in the the Westfjords region of Iceland. This beautiful area is separated from the mainland by a 30-foot-wide isthmus, formed -- according to local legend -- by three trolls who wanted to live apart from humans. Go ashore and explore the fascinating maritime museum, which exhibits a dynamic range of unusual nautical paraphernalia. Or join Zodiac excursions along the island's majestic coastline, where you can see the glacier-carved green mountains contrasted against the deep-blue color of the sea -- a beautiful sight.
