Your trip starts at the meeting point in Isafjordur. This excursion is perfect for those visiting the coastal town on a cruise ship stop. Here, you'll meet the expert, English-speaking guide leading the tour and the other guests.

The first stop is the Bunarfoss waterfall in Tungudalur. This picturesque cascade tumbles down rugged cliffs into a tranquil pool below. Melting snow and glacial runoff feed the waterfall, creating a mesmerizing sight against the backdrop of lush greenery.

Next, you'll visit Flateyri, an idyllic fishing village home to around 270 residents. It sits at the base of steep mountains and overlooks the calm waters of the fjord. Fishing is the traditional livelihood here, with many families relying on the sea for sustenance. 

The village has colorful houses, a church, and a few shops, including a book shop catering to locals and travelers alike. It's a place where you can experience authentic Icelandic village life. You'll make a few stops here, including at a viewing platform and on the main street.

The day's final stop is at an Icelandic farm where your driver-guide lives. Here, you'll see a nesting area for eider ducks. 

In addition to these stops, throughout the tour, you will stop to take photographs and enjoy the fantastic views. The Westfjords is a remote area that most travelers miss during their visits to Iceland. It's a beautiful place to discover a slower and more old-fashioned way of life.

On the way back, you'll drive through Isafjordur, the largest town in the Westfjords of Iceland, home to approximately 2,700 people. It's nestled between towering mountains and overlooks a scenic fjord.

Fishing has historically been the backbone of its economy, but the town now boasts diverse industries, including tourism, education, and services. Isafjordur is a hub for outdoor activities like hiking, skiing, and kayaking, with easy access to nearby wilderness areas like the Hornstrandir nature reserve.

You'll find museums and art galleries here, along with charming streets, colorful houses, shops, and cafes.

At the end of the tour, you'll be dropped off at the meeting point, ready to board your cruise ship or continue your adventures in Iceland.
