Your ticket is for a one-way boat trip, starting in Veidileysufjordur and finishing in Isafjordur. It begins at the Bjarmi boat meeting point in Veidileysufjordur, where you will climb aboard, ready for the three-hour ride ahead.

The Westfjords is a stunning, off-the-beaten-track destination. It's the perfect escape from a busy lifestyle and the ideal place for nature immersion and wildlife viewing. 

It's one of the best locations in Iceland to enjoy solitude and serenity, far from the crowds. At the Westfjord's northwestern tip, the Hornstrandir nature reserve is one of the area's wildest landscapes, abundant in flowering meadows and home to the arctic fox.

Hornstrandir has been devoid of grazing animals for decades, allowing plant life to flourish. The reserve is also closed to motorized traffic and has no permanent human residents. Therefore, it's a true wilderness area, ripe for exploration.

Veidileysufjordur is one of several fjords forming part of the larger Jokulfirdir fjord. The fjords form around the southern coastline of the Hornstrandir nature reserve.

The Jokulfirdir fjord boasts a spectacular setting that will make you feel like you're in a dream. Steep, snow-flecked mountains and secluded coves paint a fairytale-like picture as you cruise the calm waters.

Veidileysufjordur is an excellent location to start or finish a multi-day hike. Therefore, you could plan for the boat trip to coincide with the end of your trek. Doing so offers you the convenience and peace of mind of knowing that you've sorted your journey back to Isafjordur.

The boat has comfortable indoor seating where you can stay warm yet still enjoy the gorgeous fjord views out the window. Or, step outside into the fresh air, feel the wind on your face, and marvel at the breathtaking, unobstructed vistas.

Your boat from Veidileysufjordur to Isafjordur will likely stop at Hesteyri, on the neighboring Hesteyrarfjordur fjord, before continuing onward. The boat ride usually takes three hours and finishes at the Isafjordur port, an excellent place to continue your travels. 

Isafjordur is the largest Westfjords settlement and the region's unofficial capital, so you'll find all the amenities you need there. It's a superb bird-watching and hiking location and hosts several annual events and festivals.

Experience the jaw-dropping beauty of the Westfjords by booking this one-way, three-hour boat trip from Veidileysufjordur to Isafjordur. Check availability now by choosing a date.
