Best way to travel to Westfjords/Hornstrandir

I am traveling alone to Iceland and thinking about making a trip to Westfjords and perhaps spending time on Hornstrandir.

I'm still debating a few things:

-Whether to fly directly to Isafjordur, or rent car and drive.

-Is it feasible to stay overnight in Hornstrandir as a solo traveler- if so are there places to rent gear for camping.

Anyhow- I may just scratch the whole idea and stay in close proximity to Reykjavik if it seems too complicated.

Any advice?

Driving to Ísafjörður is a long one day´s drive through absolutely beautiful landscape. I would do it in two days at least.

Hornstrandir is only accessable by boat: http://www.vesturferdir.is/index.php?lang=en&

Driving back, to make it a ,,circle tour" is at least two days, I would prefer three.
