We start our Bolafjall mountain and Osvor tour driving from Isafjordur, through the tunnel to Bolungarvik, the second-largest town in the Westfjords, and the northernmost.

Overlooking the tip of BAHÍA ISAFJARDARDJUP, at 625m, Bolafjall mountain is the highest point one can drive to in the Westfjords. It is widely claimed it has some of the best views in all of Iceland.
A spectacular new viewing platform, opened in 2022, hanging over the edge of the sheer cliff face, has provided even greater views and a sense of spectacle.
The narrow road to the summit is open only in the summer. Bolafjall mountain was used by the US Army during WWII and the Cold War. Its current ocean monitoring radar station opened in 1992 and is operated by the Icelandic coastguard on behalf of NATO.

At the top you can enjoy a short walk to enjoy the stunning views of the Jokulfirdir fjords of Hornstrandir and Isafjardardjup Bay. Legend has it that on a clear day, you can see all the way to Greenland.

On the way back, we drive around Bolungarvik, visit the town’s church and harbour, and learn about its history and the lives of its people today.
The pretty church, perched atop a hill, has a unique stone wall and offers lovely views of the town.
Bolungarvik’s is the busiest fishing port in the Westfjords, the harbour area is filled with boats and usually alive with activity.

Our final stop is the Osvor open-air Maritime Museum, which is a replica of an Icelandic fishing station from the 19th century. Fishing huts, a boat, tools and equipment have been painstakingly preserved to provide visitors with a glimpse into the hardship of times past. Views of the open ocean and sounds of the crashing waves enhance the experience.

Se puede agregar una hora a la excursión para seguir la ruta escénica hacia el oeste hasta la bahía deshabitada Skalavik. La vista del océano desde la playa es muy bonita.
