Cruises from Isafjordur
The capital of the Westfjords of Iceland is Isafjordur. The landscape is majestic, with fjord after fjord towering above shore and sea, but each and every fjord has its own distinctive character. Tiny fishing villages nestle at their foot. On arrival take a stroll through the streets of the town.
Note the interestingly decorated ‘front yards’. Visit the Maritime Museum that contains all sorts of nautical and historical displays, and if interested in kayaking there is a kayaking outfitter right next door. Also don’t miss the part of the town known as Neostikaupstaour, which consists of the oldest buildings in Iceland, including four buildings from the 18th century.
