Since the settlement of Iceland up until the middle of the 20th century the area was populated by the toughest of Icelandic fishermen and craftsmen. Many of them making their livelihood from crafting unsurpassed vessels for the North Atlantic Ocean. Hornstrandir is now empty of permanent settlers but their abandoned homes and workshops are scattered around the area, nestled deep in the fjords and valleys. You can be sure that trekking through the Hornstrandir will leave you amazed and packed with memories that will last a lifetime.
This tour is operated by a local tour operator in Ísafjörður, it's a company that we believe has the same safety and environmental standards as we do.
The tour is completely self-sufficient, we carry everything on our back, camp in the wilderness and cook our own food. Truly a wilderness experience!
