About Isafjordur

Isafjordur is a gateway to the enchanting Westfjords region. The town is perched on a peninsula and framed by rugged peaks and tundra-covered hills. Walk around the charming Old Town filled with timber buildings and learn about the town’s past as a fishing and whaling hub.

Things to do in Isafjordur

The postcard-perfect Old Town will charm you with its timber-framed and tin-roofed buildings from the 18th century. Many feature brightly-painted facades with white trim. Some of the buildings have been reimagined as trendy cafes and restaurants, while others house boutiques and gift shops where you can buy knitted sweaters, woollen socks and other handmade souvenirs.

Isafjordur is an excellent base to explore the Westfjords region. Hiking trails wind through the surrounding hillsides and immerse you in the picturesque landscapes. The short hike up Naustahvilft, also known as Troll’s Seat, rewards you with far-reaching views over the fjord.

Boats sail across the fjord to the Hornstrandir Peninsula. This remote region is a favourite with hikers and is accessible only by boat. Spend the day exploring the dramatic landscapes of Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, which range from rugged cliffs and sandy beaches to tumbling waterfalls and shimmering glaciers. The views from the 500-metre-tall clifftops are incredible and stretch across the peninsula and surrounding fjords. If you’re lucky, you might spot Arctic foxes.

Learn about the town’s maritime narrative at the Westfjords Heritage Museum. Admire the collection of historic fishing boats and check out the photography display in the old hospital, which is now an exhibition space.
