In 2020 we offer two separate standard packages, and of course a customised option:

Isafjordur Package (8 days, 7 nights or more) - The perfect mix of sightseeing tours and efficient transfers. During the ski marathon week, stay 4 nights in the perfectly located Hotel Horn in downtown Ísafjörður, one of Iceland's most picturesque townsites. Can be extended for as many extra nights in Ísafjörður and/or Reykjavík as you like - as part of the package we offer a special 5% discount on any add-on tours of your interest from either Ísafjörður or Reykjavík!

Onundarfjordur Package (7 days, 6 nights or more) - A flexible self-drive package for independent travellers. We will tailor-make a sightseeing itinerary to your travel duration, for the perfect road trip(s) between Ísafjörður and Reykjavík - there is a lot to see and you can add as many days as you like, so you can see as much of Iceland as possible! During the ski marathon week, stay 4 nights at the peaceful Holt Inn country hotel which is located in the breathtakingly beautiful Önundarfjörður fjord, just a 15-20 minute drive from Ísafjörður.
