Unique 7-Hour Nature and Culture Tour of Eastfjords from Seydisfjordur
Step off the beaten path to discover the tucked-away culture of eastern Iceland with this seven-hour adventure. This relaxing Eastfjords tour lets you experience authentic Iceland with a trusted local guide, from fjords to fishing villages.
You’ll start this tour from Seydisfjordur, a stunning small town nestled at the tip of the Seydisfjordur fjord decorated with brightly painted buildings and rainbow pathways. Even with a population of just barely over 600, many consider it the heart of culture in East Iceland.
From there, you’ll take a meandering small-group tour into the town of Breiddalsvik. The tiny settlement is home to only 139 people and encapsulates the idyllic small-town life in the Icelandic countryside.
Breiddalsvik is also home to some popular hiking trails across the nearby Jorvikurskogur forest and the fjord to the east. The town is also an excellent place to spot wild reindeer if you’re traveling in the winter.
Outside the towns, you’ll enjoy the off-road capabilities of the tour’s super jeep as you cross the rugged countryside terrain. The vehicle will climb the mountains and bring you down to sandy beaches for some of the most unbelievably scenic views in the world.
Along the way, you can slow down and put your toes in the sand at the charming Meleyri beach on the Breiddalsvik shoreline. You can also take a relaxing hike along a hidden waterfall in the wild, fully experiencing the nature of Iceland.
All in all, this culture tour of the Icelandic east takes you to a diverse selection of places that are sure to satisfy your appetite for adventure and give you an unforgettable journey. The tour itinerary also changes per season, so you’re encouraged to visit again at a different time of year to see a different side of Iceland each time.
This nature tour runs every day with several start times, so you can choose what works best for you. If you’re starting in the morning, you can bring your own meals for lunch, but the tour managers can also provide a packed lunch for an additional cost.
The tour also runs all year long, so dress for the season and prepare good hiking boots regardless. Some parts of the experience are also weather-dependent, so expect some changes if the trip happens during bad weather.
Don’t miss this magnificent nature and culture excursion through the Icelandic Eastfjords, traveling through small towns, seeing beautiful natural sights, and experiencing Icelandic culture at its finest. Check availability now by choosing a date.
