Isafjordur is the capital of the Westfjords. The town is known for its flourishing art and cultural life and many prominent musicians and composers come from here or reside here. Frequent art exhibitions are held throughout the year, attracting many visitors. Fishing and the fish industry are among the country’s best and the town's successful fishing fleet is well known. Commerce and trading have a long history in Isafjordur and are still thriving. Skiing is the local winter sport and the skiing facilities rate among the best in the country. Every year during the Easter Holidays, a "Ski Week" attracts visitors from all over and hotels and other accommodations in town are fully booked well in advance. A prominent folk museum, which includes the country’s oldest house, Tjoruhusid built in 1734, should not be missed. The museum is in a part of town called Nedstikaupstadur and there, as well, is the country’s oldest group of restored houses. The tourist trade is also thriving and a vast number of interesting places are to be explored both on sea and land. The distance from Reykjavik is 457 km by the Whale Bay tunnel.
