Welcome to The Westfjords


Leave plenty of time: unpaved roads weave around fjords and over pothole-pitted mountain passes, but the scenery is never short of breathtaking. Once you get used to it, you may not want to leave.

Amazing Westfjords - Nature tour in Isafjardardjup bay

On this tour you get a unique opportunity to experience the raw nature of Ísafjarðardjúp bay from the sea. The bay offers you breathtaking scenery, great history and rich with wildlife where seabirds, whales and seals can be observed in their natural habitat. It can take up to an hour to get to the areas where wildlife is abundant. On the way our guide and crew will educate you on the history of the bay and make you feel like home on our old but newly refurbished fishing boat Ölver. On board you have complimentary refreshments inside the heated saloon. On the upper deck you can enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful scenery of one of Iceland most remote areas. The life at sea can be cold, even in the middle of the summer. There for we recommend to all our customers bring warm clothing, hats, mittens and water and wind tight jackets.

The Valley Ride Private HORSE RIDING Tour

Beginners prepare for a very informative time since this tour is designed as a lesson also. The first half of the tour will be where you will learn all the basics of Icelandic horsemanship (inside our arena). Then we will head out for a wonderful Valley Ride. In the valley ride you will be introduced to the beauty of Engidalur. We will go at the pace you are comfortable with and take all precautions possible to make sure that you feel secure. The tour guide will have a Gopro camera mounted on his/her helmet so your tour will be documented for your pleasure. Advanced riders will get tips they need to enjoy the special traits and gaits of the Icelandic horse. We pick more advanced horses for more experienced riders and go at a faster pace. Since we go at a faster pace we will also cover more ground. The tour guide will have a gopro camera mounted on his/her helmet so your tour will be documented for your pleasure. Keep in mind that riders that have experience in a different breed than ours may still have things to learn about riding Icelandic horses. No two breeds are exactly the same and no two horses are exactly the same. Mixed groups if your group has both beginners and advanced riders you can still enjoy the experience together. The tour guide will of course stay with the beginners and give them all the help and support they need, but we let the advanced riders have more advanced horses and give them more freedom to leave the group. Advanced riders can ride at a faster pace in the opposite direction from where the beginner group is heading and return to the group.
