A glorious panoramic drive takes you along Isafjörður -- the largest fjord in Iceland -- for fantastic views of the stunning Westfjords region and some great photo opportunities.
You're headed to the small Litlibær turf farm. This coastal setting is where you may be lucky enough to spot some friendly seals lollygagging about in their natural habitat. Your visit to the turf farm is an opportunity to learn how the Icelanders lived in the early 1900s -- often a struggle in the harsh environment of the vast Icelandic countryside. Look inside the farm buildings and experience how Icelanders lived back in the day. Churn fresh cream into butter and then taste it on traditional Icelandic flatbread.
Explore the farm and enjoy refreshments of coffee with a waffle and homemade jam.
Heading back to Isafjörður, sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery of the fjords.
Wildlife sightings are likely but not guaranteed. Some walking is required, mainly on paved flat surfaces, with some inclines and a few steps, as well as a few gravel paths and uneven surfaces. Approximate distance covered on foot is one mile. Not advisable for guests using a wheelchair or for those with mobility limitations. 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. 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. Parents traveling with children under the age of 3 must rent a child's car seat from the tour operator; please see the Shore Excursions team on board. You cannot use your child's car seat from home in Iceland.
