More about the Tour

Isafjardardjup (translated as “Isafjordur’s Deep”), is the heart of the rugged Westfjords region.
The bay is 53 km long and has three islands. There are eight fjords running off it and several settlements along its southern shore, part of which we visit on this tour.

We start the Isafjardardjup bay from Isafjordur tour by driving through the breathtaking fjord landscape and towering mountains to the Kambsnes viewpoint. From here, you can enjoy some spectacular views of the bay and Vigur island, and also get a glimpse across the bay to Mongufoss waterfall on the snow-covered and uninhabited Snaefjallastrond peninsula.

The bay area is one of the most fertile fishing and wildlife grounds in Iceland and we look out for whales as we continue south to the Hvitanes cape, home to a colony of harbour seals.
The rocky beach is one of the most accessible seal watching sites in Iceland.

Depending on your interests, there are several add-on options available.
A bit further from Hvitanes is the charming Litlibaer farm. Built in 1895 and inhabited until 1969, the tiny turf roofed house hosts an exhibition about life in those days and serves what some claim are the best waffles in all of Iceland.
At the landward end of Alftafjordur fjord, it is possible to stop for a short and easy hike to Valagil gorge and waterfall, a lesser-visited gem.
The town of Sudavik has a research centre and museum dedicated to the tenacious Arctic fox, the only native land mammal in Iceland.
