We will take you by boat to the abandoned area of the Glacierfjords in Hornstrandir Nature Reserve were the hike will start.

During the day we will get a view over Westfjords only Glacier, Drangajökull, enjoy the stroll by the seafront and cross an unabridged glacier river. We will hike through the lowlands where Iceland´s most famous outlaw, Fjalla-Eyvindur (Mountain-Eyvindur), lived and died. An experienced guide will entertain you with the remarkable story of Fjalla-Eyvindur, the history of the area and stories of people that lived there. The hike is about 12 km.
