  • a really beautiful nature reserve, we stayed 4 days and nights, we had luck with the weather, always nice! our stops were not simple but nonetheless feasible with 6 hours of walking. is a primordial reserve where everything seems always been that way since the dawn of time, seals and foxes are the masters as it should be. and then indulged in at HORNBJARG, ocb his green wall and the immense cliffs of seagulls. not for everyone because the conditions are strict, but so worth it.

  • If you have the time then this nature reserve is a must. We took a ferry to one side, and hiked to the other from which we grabbed a ferry back. On this 2 day adventure we saw orcas, whales, seals, ar...  more »
  • We have been there twice, once with an awesome time and the other with one of his typical uggiose.vi days are trips of one or more days, if you are equipped like the Alps are all breakfasts as everything was. only difference small Fords to deal with, since it's better t ogliersi shoes (the water gets to the knee) and hold onto your socks to avoid slipping, bring the spare socks. Arctic foxes I heard them, but here I haven't seen. The House of the "doctor" is a good place to sleep, young people are sleeping in tents, but the night in July sometimes drops to zero. on the other hand the giant whales in the Bay. the Trek gorgeous and talented Guide. You can also shoot yourself, it becomes a problem in case of low clouds. The hornstrandir has a grand charm and is a much more clear of what you'd expect from a completely wild nature. The first time to understand how it works round better rely on wild west agency,

  • Isolated & natural with a unique population of blue Arctic foxes
  • This place was breathtaking. The vegetation, waterfalls and fjords were absolutely stunning. If you decide to visit this place please be aware of the delicate ecosystems all around you. The moss takes 59-100 years to grow as complex and thick as it is, and it only takes one step to crush and kill a large area of it. We went on a guided hike with Borea Adventures, who took great care in educating us about the nature we encountered. The jellyfish, seals and Arctic fox we encountered added to the wild beauty of this magical place!
  • Some of the paths may be very difficult and exhausting, but the landscapes are just breathtaking. And if you are lucky with the weather, it definitely is one the best place in Iceland. Oh, and the foxes are very friendly so, yeah it's a big plus.
  • I have seen different environment. Greener reserve park settled in the snow land with huge sky changes according to time & weather change of the day across small village or town which is too much amazing to see the natures view with fog covered or snowfall anywhere you go in the Iceland. I liked the views and environment here.
  • We spent a day hiking the cliff sides to the din of nesting seabirds, over extensive networks of fox dens, and through fields of purple and yellow wildflowers. Heavy fog rolled in and out of our path throughout the day, changing the tenor and mood of the place by the minute. My breath was taken away many times by the purity of the landscape. We went by boat (2.5 hrs from Isafjordur with West Tours). Definitely worth a visit.
