  • Pack suntan lotion and sunglasses

    Ísafjörður What to Pack

    Definitely bring suntan lotion and sunglasses with you, especially if it's a clear sunny day. The sun is intense, the air quality is sparkling clean, and you're surrounded by water and ice which reflect the sun to make things worse. I developed a wicked sunburn within 15 min and I didn't even realize it at first because the air was quite chilly....

  • Kayak the fjord

    Ísafjörður Things to Do

    The island is home to the "Penguin of the North". This stunning bird can be seen in the thousands either sitting on their "homes" or swimming in the sea.
    The Atlantic Puffin is 28–34 centimeters in length, with a 50–60 cm wingspan. The male is generally slightly larger than the female, but they are colored alike. This bird is mainly black above and white below, with gray to white cheeks and red-orange legs. The bill is large and triangular, and during the breeding season is bright orange with a patch of blue bordered by yellow at the rear - a cute bird!
