Below is the Ferry Schedule. Please contact us if you need to charter the boat for groups or don't find a boat ride that suits your itinerary. The table below indicates departure times from Ísafjörður. If you are booking a return trip, you should be ready at the shore for the ride back about an hour after the boat departs Ísafjörður for most destinations. If coming back from Hornvík, it's enough to be ready about two hours after the boat departs Ísafjörður. But note that the boat might be at your location a bit later depending on bookings that day. So, don't despair if the boat is not at your location 1,5-2 hours after it departs Ísafjörður. We will pick you up if you have a booking...!

All destinations

Aðalvík

Aðalvík

Aðalvík Bay is one of the most beautiful places in Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. The vegetation is surprisingly rich despite its Northern latitude and the valleys and beaches make the perfect setting for a great outdoor adventure.

Grunnavík

Grunnavík

It is only 30 minute boat ride to Grunnavík Bay - the perfect starting point for hiking on the South side of Jökulfirðir. There is also a chance to get simple accommodation and refreshments in a travel service in Sútarabúðir.

Hesteyri

Hesteyri

Hesteyri is the main gateway for hikers heading into the nature reserve of Hornstrandir. In Hesteyri you will find well maintained traditional houses from around 1900’s that are regularly used by the owners in the summer.

Hornvík

Hornvík

Hornvík Bay is the place where nature rules are unchallenged. Two of the biggest cliffs in the North Atlantic that about 5-6 million seabirds call their home are placed here. Hornvík Bay is truly a nature's lover paradise.

Veiðileysufjörður

Veiðileysufjörður

The fjord Veiðileysufjörður lies between Hesteyrarfjörður and Lónafjörður and no permanent habitation has been in the fjord for more than 100 years. The only remains of human presence is low grass walls after the whaling station and campers' outhouse.
