Private Tours and also some with a short hike
(bookable as day trips from Reykjavík also)
These tours are suggestions. Of course, you can also book me for a 3, 4 or 5 hours sightseeing tour without refreshments and entrances. If you are interested, please ask for the price.
These are offers for couples, families or small groups (up to 11people). A traditional picnic, lunch or coffee in one of the restaurants on the way or as a final event in my garden can also be booked or a combination of one of my walks and a tour.
If you book a day trip from Reykjavík, I will organize the day for you and pick you up at the airport in Ísafjörður in the morning and drop you off again in the evening.
Many of my tours can also be booked outside of the summer season, but program changes are sometimes necessary.
Especially impressive are the northern lights here from September to November. From mid-October there is often snow.
On each tour, you will get information depending on your interests about history, geology, fauna and flora of the Westfjords and you can hear stories and legends.
