About the tour

Trekking in the East Fjords

3 Day Hiking Tour in the East of Iceland

We will spend our three day hiking trip exploring Iceland's awe-inspiring East Fjords and the hidden gems of Víknaslóðir, or the “Deserted Inlets” in and near the Borgarfjörður Eystri area. Where imposing and colorful mountains meet the ocean, creating deep fjords with secluded alcoves along magnificent coastlines. Among Icelanders, the vicinity of Borgarfjörður is known for its great natural beauty and incredible hiking routes, as well as being untouched by mass-tourism. This isolated region is also considered to be a central province of the elves. In the Álfaborg fortress (Elf-hill) their queen has long resided, governing and watching over her realm.

Your visit to Borgarfjörður Eystri will be an unforgettable experience; the amazing views, deep fjords, wildlife, stunning lake, fishing village and its surrounding farms are memories and experiences that will stay with you for years to come. 
 
Enjoy the comfort of staying at a country hotel after long days of hiking and spending time in the outdoors. All the rooms have made-up beds and private bathrooms. Towels will be provided and all meals, including a daily breakfast, packed lunch and dinner, will be taken care of. 
 
Please note that the single supplement is required for solo travelers, so make sure to add it when booking the tour.

Local culture and knowledge:
Along the way, we will enjoy the hospitality of local people through their services, culture and knowledge of the area. Fresh food, including fish, lamb and other traditional Icelandic meals, are offered at local restaurants in the area. Bird watching is a frequent pastime on our routes and sidetracks will take us to deserted inlets that tell us the stories of the past. Borgarfjordur is known for its large population of puffins and elves (or hidden people as they are called in Icelandic).
