This day tour introduces you to the stunning and diverse nature of East Iceland. It also gives you an intimate look into Icelandic culture and the history of the area. During the tour you will see beautiful little known waterfalls, a black sand beach and see the breathtaking shorelines with cliffs, islands and light houses. You will visit an old abandoned farm as well as the ruins of village. You will also visit a rural community church as well as one museum of choice. In addition, it is not uncommon to see reindeer in this part of the country, especially in wintertime.
Discover the tiny town of Breiðdalsvík with a population of 139, colorful Reyðarfjörður Fjord, an old turf-roof farmstead bursting with summer wildflowers, and the remains of an abandoned fishing village. Crossing rugged mountain roads and rushing rivers in our sturdy 4×4 vehicle, we take our time to enjoy rugged seascapes and the unmatched natural scenery found in this sleepy corner of the world.
Along the way, we stretch our legs on Meleyri black sand beach, hike along a hidden waterfall, and hopefully spot reindeer running in the wilderness during winter. Nature and Culture offers you the ultimate opportunity to experience the essence of Iceland’s Eastfjords during all four seasons and is not to be missed.
