Meet your guide and your group in Mavagardur in Isafjordur at 8 am. Board the Bjarmi ferry to Hesteyri, the biggest settlement in Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. Almost touching the Arctic Circle, you’ll feel peace and serenity as soon as you reach Hesteyri. Pack your boats and after a safety briefing, make a short paddle into the fjord along the coast to the old whaling station that was operated by Norwegian whalers in the late 18th century.
After a short break, get going towards Kviar Lodge, where you’ll cross two fjords and encounter numerous waterfalls that cascade off the towering cliffs above you. Make some beach landings along the way to stretch and enjoy the scenery. Return to the Kviar Lodge, get settled, and get the sauna going to soothe sore muscles! This farmhouse is the only one in the valley and was built in 1921.
