Isafjordur, Iceland and Westfjords Tours


Recommended Posts

We will be stopping at this port next September on the Holland America Rotterdam.  We were torn between several sites, including the Viking Village in Thingeryi and the Falls and the Arctic Fox Center.  


Has anyone been to any of those sites?  And has anyone used the Westfjords Tours?  


Thanks for your help.

The Arctic Fox center is cute.  They have a couple arctic foxes in pens who can't be returned to the wild, and a ton of dusty exhibits on the history of Arctic Foxes in Iceland.  They have a small snack bar and a dreadful minigolf course, for some reason.


We drove there from Isafjordur, toured it, and were back in about 4 hours and decided the best part was the gorgeous ride and watching planes try to land at the airport there.  You can see on google maps if they are landing from the west they have to come in over mountains.


What we really enjoyed there was a boat trip to Vigur Island.  I am pretty sure we used West Tours, who has an office right in town.  And the best meal we ever ate was here:  https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g189967-d1099110-Reviews-Tjoruhusid-Isafjordur_Westfjords_Region.html


it's a great place to rent a car and just drive and explore.  We spent two nights there out of 6 spent in the WestFjords

For other readers information, I have posted an answer to Wyoming's question on the Holland America board on Cruise Critic.  We used Westfjords in 2019 on our Isafjordur stop on HAL's Voyage of the Vikings.  We were pleased with Westfjords.
