Ísöld Nature Safari
Rib Boat Tour in Westfjords
Nature safari around Ísafjörður and Snæfjallaströnd Coast is an experience that is hard to forget. Seeing puffins and humpbacks is almost a guarantee, and loads of other birds and whales are also quite common. Ísöld, the RIB boat that takes you out onto the bay, is a speedy, open boat, that lets you really feel a certain closeness to the wild-life. eing so low in the water, and turning off the engine to let the whales play around the boat is something you don't get everywhere. Being surrounded by the rugged mountains, scenic fjords and interesting islands of Ísafjarðardjúp Bay, all the while tops everything off perfectly.
