Ísafjörður, capital of the Westfjords region, is situated close to the mouth of Ísafjarðardjúp.
The north-eastern coast is fairly straight with the only inlet being Kaldalón, but the southern side has fjords extending well into the land: Skutulsfjörður, Álftafjörður, Seyðisfjörður, Hestsfjörður, Skötufjörður, Mjóifjörður and Ísafjörður. These names translate respectively as: Shettel's fjord (shettel being a crooked object shot to capture fish), Swan fjord (the birds are frequently found here), Seed's fjord, Horse's fjord, Flounder-fjord, Meager fjord (this fjord is small, and spanned by a bridge), and Ice fjord.
