Day 1 | Dairy Farm, Skyr and Heydalur

Today you will be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavik and in the company of your private English-speaking driver/guide you will embark on this 4-day journey. Leave the city behind and head Northwest, first you will admire Hvalfjörður, the tranquil fjord located just a 30-minute drive from the Capital. This serene and picture-perfect location offers stunning sceneries: a great introduction for the days to come. You will then stop and visit a unique dairy farm where you will be able not only to take a tour of the premises but also to taste the delicious and famous Skyr and sample the locally made Icelandic delicacies. In the afternoon you will then head towards the quiet Heydalur, your location for the overnight stay. A small farm located in a cloistered, remote valley. Here you will find horses, a greenhouse with a hot pool inside, orchards, and a lovely restaurant where you can enjoy your dinner (not included). You may want to take a walk around to get acquainted with the area and savor the calm and serene atmosphere that surround this area.

Day 2 | Arctic Foxes, Ísafjörður, and a Guided Boat Tour

After breakfast, it is time to leave this location behind and head further towards the heart of the Westfjords. Your first stop today will be Súðavík where you will join a guided tour of the famous Arctic Fox Centre. This non-profit research and exhibition centre focus on the arctic fox, the only native mammal in Iceland. The onsite museum focus on the history and biology of the arctic foxes and on developing sustainable wildlife tourism in Iceland.  Next on the agenda is the “Capital of the Westfjords”: Ísafjörður. Only 2,500 people live in this town, and you will feel like you are visiting a big city after passing many tiny fishing villages. You are then ready for a unique adventure, one of the many highlights of this tour: a guided boat tour where you will admire the spectacular view of the fjords from a different perspective. You might even encounter seals or get closer to the Atlantic Puffins, also known as “The Clown of The sea” because of their brightly coloured yellow and red bills and clown-like faces. These lovely birds breed in Iceland during the summer, usually from April until early September. While sailing across these peaceful waters you will see small islands like Vigur island, a private atoll, a wildlife sanctuary and an eider colony. After this adventure, you will be driven to the area of Önundarfjörður where you will stay the night in a local farmhouse.

Day 3 | Dynjandi, Látrabjarg and Puffins

Another day, another adventure. After breakfast, you will be heading towards Dynjandi, one of Iceland’s most impressive and spectacular waterfalls. You will have the time to hike up to the top and cross many smaller waterfalls on the way. We can assure you that the panorama is nothing short of impressive and awe-inspiring. Your next stop is the lovely village of Bíldudalur, nested by the fjord Arnarfjörður. Fun fact: this lovely fishing village is surrounded by flat mountain tops and because of its nested and sheltered location, it is also known as the “good-weather-capital of the Westfjords”. You will then reach your destination for the night: Patreksfjörður: another adorable fishing town and from here, thanks to the endless daylight of the summer days, you will head towards Látrabjarg bird cliff. This westernmost point of Iceland is a long line of several cliffs, 14 kilometers long and up to 441 m high. Its shape and steepness allow birds to safely nest in what is also known as the most visited attraction in the Westfjords. Weather permitting, you may want to hike along the cliff edge and enjoy the striking, picturesque scenery for your viewing pleasure. Overnight in the area.

Day 4 | Eiríksstaðir, Vikings, and Grábrók Crater

It is time to slowly descend towards Reykjavík but don’t worry, the day will be filled with another impressive slideshow of beautiful nature, from mountains to fjords, craters, and endless lava fields. On your agenda, today is an informative tour of Eiríksstaðir where you will get to experience the Viking era first-hand! Located in the Dalabyggð region, this area is where the Viking Age expanded and took explorers first to Greenland and later to the shores of North America. This is not a traditional museum, but a recreated Viking longhouse build exactly on the same site where Erik The Red settled over 1000 years ago. Learn all the interesting and unique facts about Iceland’s rich Viking culture and heritage.

Eiriksstaðir Viking Longhouse is not just an informative site but also a fun way to learn about Iceland’s Viking Heritage while trying real Viking tools and learning about Viking clothing, craftsmanship, and architecture.

And the fun is not over yet, the last stop for this tour will be the Grábrók crater. Rising about 170 above ground, Grábrók Crater is truly one of the landmarks of the region and can be seen from a great distance. Grábrók Crater is the largest of three craters sitting on a short volcanic rift. Weather and time permitting, it is possible to hike to the top of Grábrók. There are man-made steps that make the hike easier and you will be rewarded by stunning views over all the Borgarfjörður Region and the Hreðavatn Lake. We hope you had lots of fun on this 4-day adventure. Your driver/guide will then drop you off at your accommodation in Reykjavík in the late afternoon / early evening.
