More about the Tour

We start the tour from the local fish shop and walk along the outer harbour to the backstreets with charming wooden houses steeped in history. We learn about life in the old days, the economy and fishing industry and stories from folklore.

We then head out for a view over the beautiful Isafjordur Bay to get acquainted with the region and surrounding fjords before continuing our walk past the music school to the Haestikaupstadur area where we discuss the settlement of Iceland and Isafjordur.

There is a 10-minute break at the town square where you will get to know more about Icelandic cuisine, the coffee and cake culture, and local craft. You can also visit the bakery or one of the craft shops to take a look at Icelandic wool and knitwear.

We then continue past the grand Edinborg house to Nedstikaupstadur, a heritage area with the oldest timber buildings in Iceland and the Westfjords Heritage Museum. Beyond the old houses, you have a gorgeous view of the fjord.

Your guide will then walk you back to your ship and will be happy to answer any questions or help you with what you can do for the rest of your time in port.

We can also customise this tour in a variety of ways, including:
– A tasting of local specialities
– Learning more about local handcraft
– Visiting the local microbrewery
Or anything else of special interest.

We recommend strollers and/or buggies for children under the age of 6.
