Private 8-Hour Natural Sightseeing Tour of the Westfjords Departing from Isafjordur
Discover the beauty of the Westfjords with this fantastic natural sightseeing day trip, including visits to the Dynjandi waterfall and the Latrabjarg birdwatching cliffs. The 8.5-hour private tour is perfect for anyone who wants to explore this remote region of Iceland with a personal driver and expert guide.
The day will begin with a pick-up from the town of Isafjordur. Your driver will collect you from your hotel in a comfortable car, and you’ll start your journey. Since this is a private tour, you’re free to organize the day in a way that suits you.
A must-see attraction in the Westfjords region is the Dynjandi waterfall. Many tourists choose to make this their first stop. This magnificent waterfall is often called “the jewel of the Westfjords,” and it’s easy to see why.
The waterfall has an impressive height of around 330 feet (approximately 100 meters), and it’s almost 200 feet (about 60 meters) wide at its broadest point. People often say this spectacular waterfall looks like a bride’s veil, a sight to behold.
Leading up to the Dynjandi waterfall are five other waterfalls, and you’ll be able to visit them during your trip. It’s a beautiful area for hiking, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to take some fantastic photos to help you remember your time in the Westfjords.
When you’ve finished taking in the views, it’ll be time to get back in the car for a couple of hours. Your driver can take you to the westernmost point in Iceland, the Latrabjarg cliffs. You’ll enjoy some incredible scenery along the way, and the driver will tell you about the history and geography of the Westfjords.
The Latrabjarg cliffs are a fantastic destination for birdwatching — the area is one of the largest seabird cliffs in Europe. The cliffs are almost 9 miles (about 14 kilometers) long.
The cliff is home to over 1 million seabirds. During your visit, you might be lucky enough to see razorbills, guillemots, gannets, Arctic terns, and white-tailed eagles. However, most visitors to the area are looking for Atlantic puffins.
During the summer months, the cliffs here are the nesting place of choice for thousands of puffins, so this is a fantastic place to come if you want to see these adorable birds in their natural environment. They’re also relatively tame, so you may be able to get pretty close up to them.
You’ll be able to take some fantastic photos of the birds during your visit, and the scenery that surrounds you will be truly breathtaking. When your time is over at the cliffs, your driver will take you back to Isafjordur to finish your day.
