A propos de l'excursion

We start our Bolafjall mountain and Ósvör tour driving from Ísafjörður, through the tunnel to Bolungarvík, the second-largest town in the Westfjords, and the northernmost.

Overlooking the tip of Baie d'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 Jökulfirðir fjords of Hornstrandir and Ísafjarðardjúp Bay. Urban legend has it that on a clear day, you can see all the way to Greenland.

On the way back, we drive around Bolungarvík, 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.
Bolungarvík’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 Ósvör 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.

It is possible to add an hour to the tour to follow the scenic mountain road further west from Bolafjall to the uninhabited Skálavík Bay. The ocean views from the pebbled black sand beach are breathtaking.
