The Back Streets of Ísafjörður


Ísafjörður has towering mountains on either side, providing the perfect shelter for a lively harbour and a perfect setting for its little over 3.000 inhabitants. The town has for centuries been the largest fishing village in the area.

This tour gives you the glimpse of the traditional every day life in Ísafjörður. A local guide will take you for a two-hour walk around town. Along the way you are likely to bump into the local barber who plays the accordion or even interrupt the baker training for the marathon.

After a break for lunch, e.g. fresh fish, we board a boat and head for Vigur Island for a walk through the nature and history of the area. you will then be treated with homemade cakes and coffee but before heading to the mainland be sure to visit Europe´s smallest post office. bring a pen for sending a card back home.
