Breidafjordur, your destination for the hour, is a magnificent fjord located between the Westfjords region and the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in Iceland. It measures 31 miles (50 kilometers) wide and 78 miles (125 kilometers) long.

As you set sail on this immersive tour, you will find yourself surrounded by breathtaking panoramas of towering mountains, rugged coastlines, and pristine waters. Besides these visual treats, abundant wildlife and birdlife will welcome you on this excursion.

Breidafjordur fjord is a paradise for bird enthusiasts, as it serves as a nesting ground for numerous avian species. Keep your eyes peeled for puffins, black-headed gulls, fulmars, and other seabirds soaring above the azure waters or tall cliffs.

With luck on your side, you might even spot the gentle giants of the ocean roaming the large bay. Marine creatures like humpback whales, minke whales, and white-beaked dolphins are known to roam these waters, especially in summer. 

The highlight of your Icelandic cruise is an exceptional seafood-tasting experience. Breidafjordur bay is renowned for its bountiful marine resources, and the cruise will take you to the heart of this culinary treasure trove.
