Isafjordur: This was a small group tour to Litlibaer, a tiny home from the early 1900s with stone walls and a turf roof. You will see many turf roofs throughout the country. We were served waffles and jam and our guide made butter in a churn. We were also served homemade chocolates at a photo stop and told about the home-grown enterprises to earn money in this sparsely populated country. The tour guides were one of these enterprising natives. They were a married couple who had purchase their own large touring van and enthusiastically showed us their homeland. Read Less

We did an other independent tour with FAB/Iceland Guided Tours. We went on FAB502 to Dynjandi Waterfall. We really enjoyed the trip, the weather was fabulous and the waterfall stunning. I picked mini bus tours as I prefer small groups particularly as it makes getting on and off the bus much quicker. Read Less

Tender port, Very small town with some shops in the downtown. Tendered in at Njardarsund st., which is one block from the local microbrewery, Dokkan Brugghus. Like Akeruyi, it was cold and windy in the morning then was sunny in the afternoon. The shops were small and only one of these had “Islafjordur”-branded items. The whale bone Arch on the hill above town made for a nice picture and also provided an opportunity for a photo of Islafjordur with the ship and mountains in the background. Read Less

A quiet place. The tour was interesting especially about how the fishing used to take place.. the music performance was acceptable but a little disappointing as were expecting to see Schoolchildren performing and it was their teacher.

We booked a private tour with Wild Westfjords tours. Our guide Herbert is a native of Isafjordur, and had many stories that only locals would know. The town is somewhat new to tourism.

I took a Holland America tour to Vigur Island. It was really a nice place with lots of birds including puffins, but it was too uneven for me to do the tour with the guide. The boat ride was good, though a little chilly if you want to sit outside, the views were nice and I saw whales and puffins on the way. Off the dock, the trail is made with very large rocks, which is where I fell and realized I could not make it by myself walking with a walking stick, so I hung around and watched the birds close by, still able to find a place to watch the puffins. The others did a walk around the island on a mostly grassy path- I probably could have made it- but they went to one end of the island where arctic terns divebombed them and made it uncomfortable. A really great tour to get back to nature, and it was nice talking to the duck down farmers. Read Less

We took a tour to the arctic fox exhibit and saw a beautiful fjord. A nice small town but not much near the dock.

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
