Fjords galore! Need I say more?
The definition of a fjord is "a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs, as in Norway and Iceland, typically formed by submergence of a glaciated valley." Somehow, that technical description simply doesn't do justice to the pure, raw beauty of these geologic features. Once you've taken this tour, you will agree.
There’s something quite appealing about the remoteness, the ruggedness, the raw beauty of fjords. See for yourself on this tour of Isafjordur Bay, which lies at the center of the Westfjords region. The snow-capped mountains, the brilliant blues of the water, the crisp, clear skies all combine to make this a once in a lifetime experience.
The drive from our meeting point to the bay is approximately one hour, and upon our arrival a stop will be made at Hvitanes Cape, home to a Harbor Seal colony. You might find yourself feeling a bit envious of the seals, they look so warm and comfy sunning themselves on the rocks. But a stop at Litlibaer Farm for a cup of tea and crisp waffles will make you feel warm and comfy too.
Heading back to Isafjordur, you will have a new appreciation for the hardy people of this region, who have made a life for themselves on this windswept, difficult terrain.
