The day begins when we meet up at our Service Center for a briefing, where we will answer any questions and make final preparations. We depart at 9 am from the harbor in Ísafjörður on our passenger ferry.
The journey will take around an hour, taking us past dramatic mountain cliffs and sparkling-blue fjords – keeping an eye out for the whales who visit the area. The boat will drop us at the Ádalir valley in Veiðileysufjörður fjord – a beautiful area that’ll give us a taste of things to come.
We’ll then begin the gentle hike towards the top of the valley – passing icy-blue glacial streams and rainbow-colored flower fields that show no signs of human presence. We’ll climb to an elevation of close to 500 meters and enjoy a stunning panoramic view over the entire Westfjord system. We’ll find a picturesque spot along the way and pause to enjoy a traditional Icelandic picnic, to a stunning natural backdrop.
We’ll spend the afternoon descending down the Kvíadalur Valley until we reach our old farmhouse in Kviar, which is located on a lonely cliffside that overlooks a tranquil fjord. There you can explore the area by yourself, while your friendly guide prepares a traditional Icelandic dinner. We recommend keeping an eye out for the playful Arctic Foxes that live in the garden. We’ll enjoy our dinner and then catch the ferry back to Ísafjörður, arriving at around 8 PM, following a day filled with adventure and plenty of stunning natural beauty.
