Meals not included
Stroll through the Westfjords' largest town, Ísafjörður, where a complex past seamlessly melds with contemporary life. With your local guide, Ísafjörður is interesting to explore on foot -- its back streets and old houses are unique in all of Iceland, and Ísafjördur boasts a significant role in the history of Iceland.
On your walk, you may encounter the barber playing his accordion, the baker training for a marathon, or the goldsmith paddling his kayak offshore. Many famous persons and unusual people have made their homes here.
Snap a photo of some of the local landmarks -- including the fishermen's monument -- and peer into the windows of the local shops.
Step inside the Maritime Museum (at your own expense) to form an impression of how different life was in Iceland just 100 years ago. You can also try some well-known Icelandic delicacies such as dried fish and Brennivín.
Walk back to the ship on your own, or guests who wish to stay in town to shop or explore independently are welcome to do so, but must make their own way back to the ship.
Not advisable for guests with mobility limitations. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
Due to Ísafjörður's remoteness and the scarcity of professional guides, all guiding is handled by locals; some are not professional, but all have great experience in guiding and extensive knowledge of the area. Entry to the Maritime Museum is not included; the guide will leave you outside the museum, and you are free to enter at your own expense. You will walk back to the pier unescorted -- it is only a couple of minutes away. Not advisable for guests with mobility limitations. Suitable for guests using a wheelchair with a companion to assist. Restrooms are not wheelchair accessible. It is essential that you wear warm, layered clothing to fully enjoy and participate in this excursion; outer layer should be waterproof and windproof. Bring gloves, a warm hat and a scarf. Wear sturdy, non-skid walking shoes.
