About the activity

I will take you on a walk through the city and up to the slopes above Isafjordur (Ísafjörður). We will visit interesting places, such as historical houses and trade centers from the prime time of Isafjordur.

The small town of Isafjordur is unique in Iceland. Its unusually well-preserved city center dates from the 19th century and still reflects its charming history that remains alive in the legends and stories. Isafjordur is known today for its cultural and artistic diversity.

We will talk about history, culture, legends and lots of stories about the people who lived here and their common beliefs. But, why people are proud to live here now? What is important for them today? How they live and think? How people lived in the past centuries? We will visit different historical places to answer this questions and more.

At the end of your hike, in the middle of nature, experience an insight into Icelandic vegetation and the formation of the Westfjords while you will enjoy the wonderful view of the fjord and surrounding valleys.
