Getting There & Away

The ferry to Stykkishólmur on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula arrives here at Brjánslækur, from where mid-May to mid-September Westfjords Adventures (www.wa.is) buses go north towards Ísafjörður (prebook in May and September) or west towards Patreksfjörður and Látrabjarg (prebooking required).

Strætó (www.bus.is) bus 59 Hólmavík–Búðardalur–Borgarnes stops at Króksfjarðarnes' White-Tailed Eagle Centre.

Or you can enter the region by car from the historic Dalir region in West Iceland, taking you through deserted rolling hills and agricultural fields, then along salt-encrusted rocky bays. Despite the new paved road along the south coast, the unpaved road from Þorskafjörður to Kollafjörður remains rough (but open to 2WDs).

The nearest airport is Bíldudalur Airport, and there is car rental there and in Patreksfjörður.
