6 hours

We start the tour by driving to the Latrabjarg bird cliffs, the westernmost point of Iceland and the largest bird cliffs in Europe.

On the way, we can stop at the rusty steel ship of Gardar. Once used for whaling and herring fishing, it is the oldest steel ship in Iceland and was abandoned on the beach in 1981.

Home to millions of seabirds, Latrabjarg is the best place in Iceland to get close to the puffins which sit mostly fearless on the cliff’s edge.
On a clear day it is possible to view the Snaefellsjokull glacier towering on the horizon.

It is possible to add extra time to this tour for a detour to the Geldingsskorardalur valley where you can hike to a secret viewpoint looking over the Latrabjarg cliffs and Raudasandur beach.

We then continue to the Breidavik and Orlygshofn beaches. Unique to Iceland with golden sands, the view of the coastline against the backdrop of the mountains is breathtaking.

They’re where visitors like to unwind, take a dip, relax, laugh, swim and generally

Of Collectors’ items & curious memories: The museums of the Westfjords 

To think of museums simply as places to see collections of old items is to miss the point. Museums are much more than that, especially the ones in the Westfjords.  A fine mix of history and folklore, art and heart, craft and culture, and above all, a crucible of human ingenuity in an environmentally extreme
