Embark on an 8-hour sightseeing tour of the scenic and picturesque mountainous region of Mt. Kaldbakur. The tour starts at Isafjordur where you take on the rocky backcountry trails driven by a legendary driver. En route, you will enjoy the panoramic view of the landscapes known as the Westfjord Alps. The tour also includes a hike up the summit of Westfjord's highest mountain.
On this tour we’ll go from Isafjordur to Dyrafjordur and then continue our journey onto the jaw-dropping rock face road made with a small 70 horsepower Bulldozer called “the teaspoon” driven by the legendary Elis Kjaran and his son Ragnar.
Along this winding road, we’ll see abandoned farms and a spectacularly scenic mountain range often referred to as the Westfjord Alps. We’ll start our hike from the mountain pass Kvennaskard, ascending 570m to the summit of Westfjord’s highest mountain, Kaldbakur (998m).
On a clear day, the picturesque landscape is evident everywhere you look. From Kvennaskard we’ll drive down the narrow road to the beautiful valley Kirkjubolsdalur and back to Isafjordur.
