We offer Guided Walks through Ísafjörður in the Westfjords of Iceland
Fun walk featuring culture, traditions, and culinary experiences of the Westfjords
Our walk starts at the Tourist information, goes through the pictureresque centre of Ísafjörður and ends at your guide Helga´s garden. From there you have a fantastic view of the fjord while sampling traditional dishes. On the way we stop at a local fishmonger, get insights into the history and culture of the Westfjords, its traditions, its food, life and working conditions and speak with local people. Like the Icelanders in former times we will also gather some herbs for our meal.
On the big sunny patio on the edge of town in the middle of colourful shrubs we will prepare a tasty fish dish together. During the meal there is time for questions and to learn some Icelandic words. The dessert is also one of the Westfjord´s traditions: „ Pönnukökur“.
At the end the guests can easily get back to town on their own (town centre ca. 20 Minutes).
Please note: the walk is not difficult - mostly fixed paths and only a slight difference in height. Nevertheless the 1 1/2 hours through the place (2 km/1,5 miles) and to Helga´s garden are not recommended for handicapped people.
