Cruises from Vigur Island
Vigur is an island in the Ísafjardardjúp fjord in Western Iceland, offshore from villages such as Hamar, Kobleinseyri and Trod. It is the second largest island in the fjord, and it is filled with bird life, being a nesting ground for Puffins, terns, guillemots and several other species. There’s an historic building on the island known as the Viktoriuhus that acts as a small museum of items from the Westfjords Folk Museum. To reach Vigur there are trips by boat from Isafjordur during the summer months.
The family living there bases its livelihood mainly on tourism, and making collections of eggs, together with puffin hunting.
