Departing from Isafjordur

The mountains and valleys around Isafjordur offer the enthusiastic walker some great opportunities for daytrips in the unspoiled nature. The view over the picturesque town and the sheer mountains on each side is spectacular and takes on a different shape with every step of the way.

The trip begins with a short bus ride up to the ski area of Seljalandsdalur where we start the walk.

Nature West Fjords Hiking in Iceland

Viewing two valleys at the same time: Hnifsdalur and Seljalandsdalur

Our route takes us along mountain lakes, crystal clear streams and patches of fluorescent moss that is quite characteristic for the mountains in the area.

After roughly an hour walk, we get to the base of the mountain with Þjófatindar Peaks looming above. We zig-zag up to the pass between the peaks for a spectacular view over the surrounding mountains and fjords.
