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.
We 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.
Our area is very beautiful and has a lot of things to experience. In addition, you can also book a personal tour http://isafjordurguide.is/main_site/site/privatetours
and add lunch, lunchpackage or coffee inside. Also, the trip can be longer or shorter and we can stop at local handycraftshops. You can visit a lot of very beautiful historic villages around like Suðureyri, Flateyri, Þingeyri, Bolungarvík and Súðavík. Look at the map on the right side.
I offer two Tours to Dynjandi (no 1 and 2), the biggest waterfull of Westfjords who falls in fascinating cascades over 100 meters down to the sea. The native nature around is very beautiful.
5 hours to the Waterfall Dynjandi (no 1)
Ísafjörður - Waterfall Dynjandi - Hrafnseyri - Ísafjörður
18 seat bus
We start the tour by driving straight to Dynjandi, the majestic icon of the Westfjords. There we stop for up to an hour to enjoy the wonderful views of the waterfall and Arnarfjordur fjord, and listen to the soothing sound of Dynjandi tumbling down the mountain in a series of seven waterfalls.
The top tier is certainly the most impressive but each one of the other six is unique in its own right! We highly recommend doing the easy hike up to the top tier for a magnificent view.
Before we will drive back over Hrafnseyrarheidi to the Árnarfjörður we can stop in Hrafnseyri for a visit in the heritage museum or for a refreshment. On our way back to Ísafjörður, we will stop for a half hour at the Hrafnseyri. Here it is possible take a stroll around to explore the traditional turfhouses, the church, or to enter the museum dedicated Iceland's independence hero Jon Sigurðsson who was born in Hrafnseyri.
There it is possible to get some food like a soup or our traditional waffles with cream and rhubarb jam.
Include: guidance, refreshment

5-6 hours - to the Waterfall Dynjandi (no 2)
Ísafjörður - Þingeyri - Dynjandi - Hrafnseyri - Auðkúla - Ísafjörður
18 seat bus
This journey will take us from Ísafjörður through an underground tunnel to Önundarfjörður and to the beautiful village Þingeyri. After visiting Þingeyri it is a experience to make our way up the steep and narrow winding backcountry heath road (Hrafnseyrarheidi) to Arnarfjordur where the thunderous waterfall Dynjandi awaits us.
We will stop there for aprox one hour so you can hike up to the base of this majestic waterfall. The waterfall is clearly visible from the parking lot so you don’t need to hike if you don’t want to. On our way back we will stop at Hrafnseyri cafe where you can buy coffee and cakes if you are interested and then drive by the farm Audkula, where there is a large colony of Eider Ducks during the breeding season.
Price: 12.000 ISK
6 hours: Around Svalvogar - Back Country Road
Ísafjörður - Back Country Road (Kjarans Road) - Þingeyri - Ísafjörður
6 seat Super Jeep
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.
Price: 28.000 pp
