Guided Sightseeing Tours and Day Tours in Westfjords of Iceland

in small groups - perfectly for individual shore excursions

in cooperation with my friend companies.

Their guides are experienced and security conscious.

 

The Westfjords have a lot to offer:

Fresh air - clean water - untouched nature - loneliness - unusual landscapes - silence - vastness - bizarre rock formations - long beaches - elves - trolls - sagas - brightness of the Nordic nights - fascinating prospects and special people, living in this harsh land.

We will then make our way up the old Breiðadalsheiði Heath road to get to a good vantage-point for a spectacular view over the town of saf and vicinity.

Ísafjörður - Back Country Road (Kjarans Road) - Þingeyri - Ísafjörður

A mountain and sea panorama like nowhere else

This tour will leave you speechless, delivering more thrills than a theme park.

On this tour we’ll go from Ísafjörður to Dýrafjörður and then continue our journey onto the jaw dropping rock face road made with a small 70 horsepower Bulldozer called “the teaspoon” driven by the legendary Elis Kjaran and his son Ragnar. Along this winding road we’ll see abandoned farms and a spectacularly scenic mountain range often referred to as the Westfjord Alps. We will then drive the steep and narrow Hrafnseyrarheidi heath road from Arnarfjordur back to Dyrafjordur and onward to Ísafjörður again. In Þingeyri you have the option to take a coffee break in a historical restaurant.

Please note: The road is only open between July through September.
