The small town of Ísafjörður is unique in Iceland. Its unusually well-preserved city centre dates from the 19th century and still reflects its charming history that remains alive in the legends and stories. Ísafjörður is known today for its cultural and artistic diversity.
Our guide meets you at the Tourist Information, dressed as a woman from the 19th century, and takes you on a walk through the city and up to the slopes above Ísafjörður. On the way she shares her lunch box with you. You will visit interesting places, such as historical houses and trade centers from the prime time of Ísafjörður. Further, you will receive information on history and culture and hear a lot of stories about the people who lived here and their common beliefs. You will also visit the places the stories are told about.
At the end of your hike, in the middle of nature, experience an insight into Icelandic vegetation and the formation of the Westfjords while you enjoy the wonderful view of the fjord and surrounding valleys.
