Iceland, Arnarfjörður, is a dream come true for those looking to sail and explore. Embark on a fantastic sailing adventure, where we go out of Ísafjörður harbour, sail out of the fjord and pass by several fjords on our way to Arnarfjörður. The itinerary also includes a visit to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, Dynjandi. We make our way to the natural hot pool in Reykjafjörður to soak in before we visit an abandoned fjord which can only be accessed by boat.

This outing is suitable for people of all ages and varying interests.

Arnarfjordur is the second-largest fjord of the Wesfjords and is known as one of the most beautiful of the fjords, due to its diverse landscape, majestic mountains and the breathtaking Dynjandi (‘Thunderous’) waterfall.

The fjord is 30 km long and 10 km at its widest and features several smaller fjords and inlets. It borders on Slettanes to the north and Kopur to the south.

Between Arnarfjordur and Dyrafjordur lies the Westfjord’s highest mountain, Kaldbakur (not to be confused with Kaldbakur in Eyjafjordur), rising to a height of 998 meters. The fjord also features strongly in folklore, said to have the most monsters of all the country’s fjords as well as having many sorcerers.

Whether you are interested in joining a guided journey through Icelandic history, exploring the waters on your own, or simply taking in nature’s majestic beauty from onboard, your activity level is up to you.

Activities include sailing, guided hikes and land excursions, bathing in natural hot pools as well as a visit to Dynjandi waterfall. Sea Kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding is also a great way to explore the fjords. Then we will settle down on the boat in the evening for a spot of stargazing with a high probability of seeing the Northern Lights.
