A two-day sightseeing tour from Ísafjörður to the main highlights of the Westfjords. The tour takes you to the majestic Dynjandi waterfall, the stunning Látrabjarg cliffs and the magical Rauðasandur orange hued sand beach. We will also visit one out of two lesser known pearls of the Westfjords: either the Ketildalir valleys or the Svalvogar peninsula.

Day 1: We leave from Ísafjörður in the late morning, and head towards Southern Westfjords. On the way, we pass over Hrafnseyrarheiði mountain pass. We visit Dynjandi waterfall, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, and then continue southwards, over the Dynjandisheiði heath towards Patreksfjörður. 

We then continue towards the westernmost tip of the Westfjords and Europe - Látrabjarg cliffs. In summer, you can see thousands of birds nesting there, including puffins, guillemots, auks and many other species. On this day, we also visit the long and gorgeous Rauðasandur red and orange sand beach. We return to Patreksfjörður, where we spend the night.

Day 2: We return to Ísafjörður, this time via Bíldudalur village and the great Arnarfjörður fjord. Today we have more time to explore hidden gems as we either take a de-tour to the secluded Ketildalir valleys or a 4x4 adventure on the exciting Svalvogar trail. We might revisit Dynjandi before returning to Ísafjörður in the late afternoon or early evening.
