Svalvogar Circle Group Tour



• The scenic Svalvogar trail, one of the most offbeat routes in Iceland

6-7 hours
1 years
2-26 people

On this tour we’ll go from Isafjordur to Þingeyri in Dyrafjordur where we will do a short bathroom/sightseeing brake, and then continue our journey onto the jaw dropping rock face road made with a small 70 horsepower Bulldozer called “the teaspoon” driven by the legendary Elis Kjaran and his son Ragnar . Along this winding road we’ll see abandoned farms and a spectacularly scenic mountain range often referred to as the Westfjord Alps.

Depending on road conditions, we have three options driving back to Isafjordur, the steep and narrow Hrafnseyrarheidi heath road, Alftarmyri heath road that usually opens late July or if both heath roads are impassable, we will drive through a tunnel between Arnarfjordur and Dyrafjördur.

Carrying a picnic lunch is a good idea but we will stop at a café where you can buy coffee and waffles and such if you want.

Preparation for the Tour

• Comfortable walking shoes
• Warm clothes suitable for Icelandic weather. We recommend multi-layered clothing including a non-cotton base layer, fleece or wool mid-layer and wind- and water-proof jacket and pants.
• Cap
• Water bottle and Lunchpack. Please note that for ~4-5 hours as we go around Svalvogar, there will be no opportunities to buy refreshments, so it’s important to have a packed lunch with you.
