The day begins in our comfortable office in Aðalstræti 17, where our friendly guide will go over the order of the day in detail and answer any questions you might have. We’ll then make the short walk down to Ísafjörður Harbor and climb aboard the ferry to Hornstrandir, which departs at 09:00. The scenic boat-ride lasts around an hour and will take us past mighty mountains, craggy cliffs, and sapphire-blue fjords.
We’ll be dropped at a beach near to our Kviar farmhouse at around 10:00, giving us plenty of time to explore this unspoiled natural wonder. Our friendly guide is very knowledgeable about the area and they will tell us about how Icelanders have managed to survive in this extreme environment. We’ll spend the morning seeking out the adorable Arctic Foxes that call Hornstrandir home.
We’ll try to tailor the rest of the day to what the group wants – we can hike up to the top of the cliffs and gaze across the fjord system in all of its glory, go and see the cascading waterfalls that are hidden behind the farmhouse or simply laze around the picturesque farmhouse and enjoy some of the cleanest air that we’ll find anywhere. We’ll enjoy a picnic for lunch and then you can spend the afternoon exploring Hornstrandir by yourself.
Our friendly guide will prepare a traditional Icelandic dinner, which we will eat together in the farmhouse, giving us a final taste of life in Hornstrandir. The boat will collect us and take us back to Ísafjörður at about 20:00 – after a day filled with majestic natural scenery and incredible wildlife.
Please note that the itinerary may change according to weather conditions and the ability of the group.
