Day Hike: King and Queen of Cliffs

from £325
10–12 hours Jun-Aug
west fjords isafjordur hike


This day guided walking tour explores Hornvik, without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in Iceland. It is surrounded by two of the three largest bird cliffs in Europe, and has a mystic remoteness. Here you will be astounded by the call of millions of birds that nest in these magnificent cliffs.

Take a boat from Isafjordur harbour, sailing past the Haelavikurbjarg cliff, which reaches up almost vertically to a height of 4,000-5,000 metres! Step ashore at the other side of the bay, then hike up to the top of the other cliff where shy Arctic foxes are known to inhabit offering the chance to spot them. Spend 6-7 hours in Hornvik, walking and enjoying the scenery. Walkers should bring good hiking boots, warm clothes, food and a camera. A packed lunch can be booked as an optional extra.

Duration 10-12 hours
