Quality of life

 

The level of service in the region is very good with accessible schools, pre-schools, higher education with master’s level studies, musical education, sports and social activities, hospitals and good health care. 

Real estate is relatively cheap in the area and the real estate prices can half of those in Reykjavik.  Those real estate prices relate both to residential housing and industrial property.

An important aspect of the everyday life in the Westfjords is how quick it is to get things done.  Distances are short and services are easily accessed.  Going home for lunch, picking up the children from school, dropping the children off for social activities and getting a doctors or dental appointment can all be done with minimal disruption of the working day.

Leisure activities such as golfing, skiing, swimming, kayaking, indoor sports activities are easily accessed and normally within 5-10 minute drive from the nearest town.
