Explore the sights of Isafjordur and capture the history of the town at the local Maritime Museum.

Enjoy a guided walk around the small town of Isafjordur, as your local guide entertains with anecdotes and facts about the local area.

Breathe in the town’s unique history as you stroll through the old, narrow streets, lined with wooden 19th century houses. Perhaps you’ll meet the barber playing his accordion, the baker training for the marathon, or see the goldsmith paddling around in his kayak?

The West Fjords Maritime Museum is located in one of Isafjordur’s oldest houses. It tells the colourful history of the fisheries and the fishing industry, with a special focus on its role in the development of Isafjordur. The town is the largest settlement in the Western Fjords of Iceland and is the centre of trade and culture in the area.
