Isafjordur – Isafjordur – Glowing meadows – Hornstrandir. The end of the summerseason is closing in, the ice is melting and the flowers are in full bloom. Setting sail for Hornstrandir, this time you will get to see the waterfalls of melted ice and see the green grass. It is a great place to do day hikes and just take in the overwhelming sights! Open to all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Programme Outline

Ports

Isafjordur (meaning ‘fjord of ice’) is a small port town in the northwest of Iceland. It is a major access point to the nature reserve on the Hornstrandir Peninsula, an uninhabited wilderness area to which ferries run weekly during summer. Despite its small population of 2600 people, the town has a relatively urban feel. It is considered a centre for alternative music and there’s even a hospital. Have a look around in the Maritime museum or go for a tour of the waterfalls and the nearby fjords.
