Leaving Isafjörður we drive to Ƿingeyri, a tiny fishing village on one of Iceland’s most scenic fjords, Dýrafjörður. At Ƿingeyri, we make a short stop to explore a Viking site. Here you can learn about Viking history before continuing your journey to Dynjandi waterfall.
The beautiful Dynjandi waterfall, shaped like a bridal veil, is the largest in the West Fjords at a height of about 100 m. It is considered one of the most impressive waterfalls in all of Iceland. There is a bit of a walk up to the waterfall, but it is worth it. In addition to experiencing Dynjandi up close, you encounter other smaller waterfalls along the way.
We return to Ƿingeyri for light refreshments before continuing on to the small, sustainable fishing village of Suðureyri. With only 270 inhabitants, it is tiny, but exceptionally environmentally friendly. Villagers have also cleverly combined their Icelandic fishing traditions with tourism. You will learn about Suðureyri´s history, which has everything to do with fish and the fishing industry, and then walk through the village along the popular Seafood Trail, where you can taste the wonders of freshly caught Icelandic fish.
After the seafood tasting, we visit a local fish processing plant where you learn about how Icelanders process first-class fish products. The excursion ends with a return to Isafjörður and the ship.
