Isafjordur

Welcome to Isafjordur

Your journey to Isafjordur takes you past the uninhabited Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and the beautiful Jokulfirdir glacier fjords. You will also get a glimpse of the fishing town of Bolungarvik at the mouth of the Isafjordur Bay.

Nestled in between the sheltering mountains of the Skutulsfjordur fjord, Isafjordur is the gateway to the wild and offbeat Westfjords.
A local poem describes it as embraced by blue mountains, and it is indeed one of the most picturesque townsites in Iceland.

The town was settled as a trading post in the 16th century but grew with the salt fish industry in the 19th century and is today home to approximately 2600 people.
The backstreets are steeped in history and host Iceland’s oldest cluster of houses dating back to the late 18th century. Our culture walk is a delightful tour of the town with insight into the history, culture, traditions and lives of people.

The magnificent Dynjandi waterfall is a major highlight of the region and our most popular shore excursion from Isafjordur.
But if you would like to get away from the crowds, there is no dearth of awe-inspiring landscape and offbeat surprises in the surrounding fjords and fishing villages.

Isafjordur is one of the “big four” cruise ship ports in Iceland – the others being Reykjavik, Akureyri and Seydisfjordur.
