English commentary

On this fantastic five-day tour, you’ll see the finest sights western Iceland offers, including the wild and remote Westfjords and the “Silver Circle” of West Iceland. 

The first part of the tour takes us to the Silver Circle of West Iceland, featuring Hraunfossar and Barnafoss waterfalls and the powerful hot springs at Deildartunguhver. Then we’ll go to the stunning Snæfellsnes peninsula, known as “Iceland in Miniature,” because all its finest features can be seen here in one place. You’ll see glaciers, mountains, black sand beaches, waterfalls, and more! You’ll also have the option of taking a thrilling tour of a lava tunnel or relaxing in an authentic Viking hot pot deep in the mountains.

Next we will turn to the Westfjords – the oldest part of the country, with the fewest people living there. This is where nature reigns supreme! Fabulous fjords cut deep into high mountain ranges, with exciting mountain passes and coastal roads taking you from one stunning scene to another. Sit back and enjoy the view as our experienced drivers guide you through these wild landscapes in safety and comfort.

Get ready to see the incredible bird colonies at Látrabjarg, the red sand beaches at Rauðasandur, and the famous waterfalls of Dynjandi, with overnight stops in Patreksfjörður Area and town of Ísafjörður. Look out for Arctic foxes, puffins, and seals as we explore the wilds of the Westfjords!

Day 1 | The Silver Circle of West Iceland


Borgarfjörður has a special place in Icelandic history, the setting for many of the famous Icelandic sagas. We’ll take you deep into these Viking heartlands on a Silver Circle tour featuring epic waterfalls, powerful hot springs, and historic sites.

Bifröst is famous in Norse mythology as the border between Earth and the realm of the Gods. In Iceland’s version, you’ll find the lovely waterfall Glanni with rugged Grábrók volcanic craters looming in the background.

Then we’ll visit Deildartunguhver, Europe’s most powerful hot spring, where you’ll walk amongst billowing clouds of steam vapor. The hot spring is so strong that it provides hot water for the whole area!

Reykholt is a significant historical site in Iceland, home to Snorri Sturluson, a 13th-century chieftain who wrote much of Iceland’s early history. You’ll see a traditional church and a recreation of his private hot pot at Snorralaug (Snorri’s Pool).

Hraunfossar (Lava Falls) is next, an extraordinary waterfall that emerges from the middle of the lava field above the Hvita (White) river, stretching as far as the eye can see! Nearby, you can also see Barnafoss, a powerful waterfall that rages through a narrow canyon. Legend has it that two children drowned trying to cross a stone arch here – Barnafoss means “Children’s Falls.”

Then we’ll visit Húsafell, a woodland oasis packed with Viking history, including turf houses and the famous “lifting stones” used to test your strength!

Choose your activity during booking process:


From Húsafell you will be taken to the Viðgelmir Lava Cave. Explore an astonishing lava cave system deep underground. Filled with fascinating ice formations, stalactites, and stalagmites, this multicolored marvel is one of the most extensive lava tunnels in the world. You’ll see its best features on this thrilling 90-minute tour.


Relax like a Viking in the fabulous Canyon Baths deep in the Deildargil canyon. Enjoy a 4WD journey with stunning views of beautiful canyon waterfall called Langifoss to reach a second secret canyon. Then you can lie back in the warming waters of an authentic stone-walled spa and enjoy unforgettable views!

The “Snow Mountain Peninsula” offers a fabulous combination of majestic mountains, towering waterfalls, and the glacier-topped volcano that gives its name to this picturesque peninsula. Also known as “Iceland in Miniature,” this place inspired Jules Verne’s “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” so get ready to see some of the finest views in Iceland!

After leaving Borgarnes, we’ll stop for seal-spotting at Ytri-Tunga, a golden sandy beach on the southern shore. Then we’ll head to Búðakirkja, a beautiful black-timbered church that draws couples worldwide to get married there.

Close by lies Arnarstapi, a lovely little fishing village on the coast, where you can enjoy a breathtaking stroll along the cliffs to see Gatklettur. This beautiful stone arch is a glorious sight, with the black volcanic rock covered in green mosses.

Heading further west, we’ll see Lóndrangar next. These incredible basalt columns soar 70 meters above the sea, its cliffs filled with summer seabirds.

Iceland is famous for its black sand beaches, so you’ll love walking on the sands of Djúpalónssandur. Look out for the famous “lifting stones” that tested the strength of the locals before fishing trips.

Circling around the Snæfellsjökull glacier, we’ll finish our Snæfellsnes tour with a visit to one of the most photographed peaks in Iceland! Kirkjufell (Church Mountain) is a magnificent sight, famous for its unusual triangular shape and its splendid setting all on its own. It’s an iconic image and the perfect place to end your second day spend in the West Iceland!


The Capital of West Iceland

Day 3 | Into the Westfjords

Iceland is filled with magnificent landscapes, as you’ll see on this Grand Tour of the “Land of Fire and Ice.” But there’s one area many people miss, and Lonely Planet recently gave it its “Best in Travel” award.

On the next three days we will travel through the captivating Westfjords region of Iceland. Along the way, we will visit Eiriksstaðir, a Viking heritage museum that showcases the remarkable history of Eirik the Red and his son, Leif the Lucky, who discovered America long before Columbus.

Prepare to be awe-struck as we reach Coastal Cliffs at Breiðafjörður, the gateway to the Westfjords. Here, a plethora of rocky islands adorns the picturesque bay, offering a captivating sight that will leave you breathless.

Our journey truly begins as we embark on a scenic road trip, traversing numerous fjords. Throughout the journey, you will be treated to breathtaking views from the comfort of our bus, with plenty of opportunities to pause and admire the remarkable landscapes.

Prepare to be enchanted as we arrive at Vatnsfjörður Natural Reserve, home to the mesmerizing Þingmanná Waterfalls and a stunning canyon. Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of this reserve, truly a sight to behold.  

Next on the itinerary is stop at Birkimel. There you can take an optional dip in traditional Icelandic “laug” called Krosslaug. The pools have no admission fee, but there is a donation box by the changing rooms as the area is managed by the local Youth Association. This is not a luxurious spa facility, but rather a natural, local pool with breathtaking views! Entering the pool is completely optional and is for those seeking a truly authentic Icelandic experience.

In our journey to the Patreksfjörður area, we will encounter the majestic Kleifaheiði mountain range. At its summit lies a fascinating sight that awaits us! In their moments of respite, the skilled engineers responsible for constructing the mountain road erected a remarkable 5-meter-tall stone statue known as Kleifabúi, symbolizing the pinnacle of their achievement.

Optional Activity (no pre-booking required):


Immerse yourself in the true Icelandic experience as you soak in the soothing waters, all while gazing at the breathtaking fjords that embrace you. What’s more, there’s no admission fee, and no need for advanced booking! However, we kindly ask for a donation to support the Youth Society responsible for maintaining this hidden gem. Cash donations in any currency are warmly welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Please bear in mind that this hot spring doesn’t boast luxurious spa amenities. If you wish to swim, please remember to bring your own towel and be prepared to utilize the changing facilities available at local pools. While there are no individual cubicles or lockers, the facilities are segregated by gender for your comfort and convenience.


You will stay in a cozy country hotel located in the Patreksfjörður village or nearby

Day 4 | Westfjord Highlights

From Patreksfjörður, your Westfjords adventure will continue with a visit to one of Iceland’s most significant bird colonies at Látrabjarg. These towering 400-meter sea cliffs are home to uncountable numbers of puffins (from April to August), kittiwakes, cormorants, guillemots, and more. It’s a birdwatcher’s paradise! This is the most westerly point in Iceland, so look out for the colorful Bjargtangar lighthouse, too – next stop, America!

On our way there, we’ll stop for photos at the iconic Garðar shipwreck, and on our way back, we’ll take you to a spectacular beach called Rauðisandur. The name means “Red Sands,” and it’s not hard to see why! Most Icelandic beaches are made of black volcanic sand, but the Westfjords are not an active volcanic area. So the sands here take their color from crushed scallop shells instead!

We’ll then head deep into the Westfjords with more photo opportunities at Fossfjörður waterfall and the mysterious A-House!

The highlight of this day comes next – the spectacular seven-step waterfall at Dynjandi! You’ll be amazed by the sight of this stunning cascade, which tumbles more than a hundred meters in its first step, and you can climb up as close as you want. It’s the most powerful waterfall in the Westfjords, and you’ll feel the raw power of “The Thunderer” as soon you arrive!

After a photo stop at the picturesque Önundarfjörður Pier in Flateyri, we’ll then drive north to Ísafjörður for an overnight stay in the capital of the Westfjords.


We’ll stay in Ísafjörður, the capital of the Westfjords!

As we make our way towards Bolafjall, a majestic mountain standing at 638m, prepare to be captivated by the breathtaking views. Take a walk on the “skywalk” viewing platform built over steep cliffs and immerse ourselves in the natural beauty that surrounds us. 

On our way back to Ísafjörður, let’s make sure to make a stop at the charming Ósvör Fishing Village. This collection of turf-roofed buildings offers a glimpse into the traditional way of life in this region. Let’s take our time exploring this unique historical site and soak in the peaceful atmosphere. Another must-see attraction is the Óshólaviti Lighthouse. Located nearby, this iconic landmark stands tall against the stunning backdrop of the Icelandic landscape. Let’s marvel at its beauty and capture unforgettable memories. 

Then we will start driving the Seven Fjords Road.  Alongside you will find breathtaking natural wonders, encounter charming seal colonies, thriving salmon farms, and quaint turf-roofed huts. Gazing northwards, you’ll be treated to the remarkable sight of Hornstrandir, a renowned wildlife sanctuary, and the vast expanse of the Arctic Ocean. Keep a keen watch for Arctic foxes, the sole indigenous land mammals in Iceland, as they freely roam this area. And if you happen to miss an encounter, fret not, as you can still meet these marvelous creatures at the Arctic Fox Center while also supporting their conservation efforts. Additionally, there are numerous picturesque viewpoints scattered along the route, allowing travelers to relish in the beauty of their surroundings. Join us as we explore some of the most awe-inspiring stops on this remarkable coastal road, tailoring our itinerary to ensure the best experience based on visibility conditions.
