As you approach the port of Isafjordur, the stunning scenery and setting will take your breath away. And as hikers would know, the views only get better once you get up into the mountains yourself.
The Westfjords are one if Iceland’s most remote regions and despite the dramatic mountain landscapes surrounding Isafjordur, even during the peak summer, more often than not you find that you have your chosen hiking route all to yourself!

We only offer private hiking tours and they are always customised to match the duration and difficulty level you would prefer. So please send us an email with sufficient details of your hiking experience and what you would like so we can plan the perfect hike for you.
