There was no warning that to see the falls one had to climb up a considerable distance on uneven rocks with no handrails--a very treacherous route that posed a huge possibility of serious injury or death if one fell

We took a tour booked through ShorexIceland. It seems similar to tours offered on the ship but less expensive. The two main goals of the tour were to visit Dynjandi Falls, a beautiful waterfall, and to visit the fish processing plant in Sudureri. To do this we actually drove along 5 different fjords, the road to the final one was a summer only gravel mountain road that has emergency mountain huts for those traveling over the road on foot in the winter. Each fjord was in a different stage of morning fog. It was a beautiful experience in a misty way, one that could never be caught on film, or a chip for that matter, but views to wonder at. The fjords and falls were worth the trip. In the Fjord hosting Tingeyri the main occupation seemed to be salmon farming and processing. In Sudureri fish was also the mainstay but it was handled a little differently. At each stop in Iceland we have seen museums celebrating the heritage of small boat fishing but in the harbors we saw big trawlers. Sudureri bills itself as the sustainable fishing capital of the Westfjords. The fishing boats were small long liners. The whole town is powered by hydro and geothermal power and all the buildings are heated by geothermal. The town’s boats and cars do use non-renewable power but the rest of the town has a low carbon footprint. There are no fish farms here and the two processing plants are modern, the shiniest fish houses I have ever seen with workers in white coats, many immigrants, processing haddock, cod and Atlantic wolf fish. The town is making its fishing industry a tourist attraction selling “seafood trail” tour packages that include samples of different fish processed different ways, including traditional dried and salted cod. They have a hotel and restaurants for tourists and sell fish to take home. Read Less

Another small town, which meant travelling some distance to places of more interest. We went walking. Not many shops if you are looking for souvenirs.

Took a short tour around the Fjord - had to go ashore by tender. Great town to visit in the north west of Iceland.

Drove to Flateyri where a lovely young lady sang for us at the village church. Scenery was amazing, Icelandic sheep are very cute, and the tunnel through the mountainside with an intersection in the middle was unreal. Great guide, a young ... Read More
