Location & Nearby
Isafjordur is the largest town in the Westfjords, and though still quite small provides a wealth of amenities for those staying at Hotel Isafjordur Horn. There are grocery stores, shops, bars, restaurants, and cafes within walking distance and gas stations for those exploring the region by car.
You can also easily reach the many museums that the settlement offers, with the cultural museum just across the street and the maritime and natural history museums almost as close. The swimming pool is just around the corner.
Perhaps the greatest attraction of the town is the breathtaking harbor, where you can enjoy incredible views of the fjord and embark on boat tours. You can even access the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve on tours from here, a remote and breathtaking region renowned for its wilderness, panoramas, and Arctic foxes.
You can see these creatures more easily in captivity at the nearby Arctic Fox Center, an institute dedicated to protecting these elusive creatures and educating visitors on their history and biology. You’ll find it 13 miles (21 kilometers) away. Visitors interested in seeing more wildlife should keep their eyes on the seas and shores when driving, as whales, dolphins, seals, and many species of bird can be found in this region.
Other attractions of the Westfjords include Dynjandi waterfall, the Latrabjarg birdwatching cliffs, and the Museum of Witchcraft and Sorcery. Dynjandi is the closest, 35 miles (56.5 kilometers) away, and one of the most breathtaking features of the country. Though Latrabjarg and the museum are take several hours to reach, the former is a magnificent nesting ground for puffins and other seabirds and the latter is a fascinating exhibition of Iceland’s magical past.
