In the Westfjords the group visited the Westfjords Energy Company (Orkubú Vestfjarða), The Ísafjörður High School, the hydro-electric power plant Mjólkárvirkjun, and the old forge in Þingeyri. Recreation and culture was also on the agenda, for example a trip to the sites of Gísla Saga and a play by actor Elfar Logi Hannesson from the saga.

The field school was very successful and some of the administrators in the group are interested in sending students for vocational training to the Westfjords in the future.
