DAY 1 - WEST-FJORDS, MAJESTIC SCENERY AND SERENITY

  • Early morning arrival in Iceland, your driver/guide will be waiting in the Arrival Hall at the airport (KEF) to start your adventure. 

  • You waste no time as you will head through Reykjavik to catch brief glimpse of the outskirts before heading along the west coast of Iceland with our first stop at Borgarnes, where Viking Chieftain Egill Skallagrimsson settled.

  • Next stop at Vatnshellir for a view of the amazing lava chambers underground. We will experience some of the amazing landscapes of Snaefellsnes and the Glacier Snaefellsjokull as well as Baejarfoss waterfall, the famous Kirkjufell Mountain (GOT) and to Stykkirsholmur in the mid-afternoon.

​DAY 3 -  ISAFJORDUR

  • Sugandafjordur is the last of the southern fjords we will see, know for rich fishing and hard weathers, and we will see evidence of both before we enter into Iceland’s longest tunnel, which leads us to the regions capital, Isafjordur. The views continue to change from fjord to fjord, each protected by taller and more vertical mountains than the next.

  • We will make our way thought Isafjordur to the village of Bolungarvik, where we stop at the Bolafjall viewing platform, which some say that can see Greenland from on a clear day. Check out the popular beach at Skalavik if time allows.

    Day 4-AMAZING WILDLIFE

  • The ice carved fjords, and rough beaches are not only spectacular to behold, `but look closely and you are almost sure to see tens if not hundreds of seals, large and small hang our on the rocks by the ocean. The arctic fox although shy, can often be seen darting over the road and swans, eider ducks are commonplace. This area furthermore is a stronghold of the Golden Tailed Eagle and the Gyrfalcon, both the more common Icelandic subspecies “Islandicus“ and the occasional lighter colored “Candicans“ which is a common visitor from Greenland.
