Ísafjörður's cultural life is known for being especially vibrant, and the highlights are several annual cultural festivals. The music festivals Aldrei fór ég suður, which is held at Easter, and has become integral to the Icelandic music scene. Then there is the theatre festival Act Alone, which takes place in August, and has also become a regular part of the cultural life of the town and focuses exclusively on monologue and one-man-shows. 

The Westfjords region offers endless opportunities to enjoy its dynamic culture and unique nature and we encourage those interested to get to know the region and all it has to offer on www.westfjords.is.

University Centre staff members assist students in every way to become integrated in the Westfjords community.

More information about the services of the town can be found on the Ísafjörður website.
