The Seljalandsdalur and Hnífsdalur valleys offer stunning vistas of the surrounding landscape. The mountains around Ísafjörður are a unique shape and demonstrate the raw power of the glaciers, which carved out the terrain around us.
The journey begins at our cozy office in Aðalstræti 17 (downtown main street), where you meet your guide, and make final preparations. We then make the 5-minute drive up to the ski area in Seljalandsdalur, where we begin the hike.
After roughly an hour, we get to the base of the mountain with Þjófatindar peaks looming above. We zig-zag up to the pass between the peaks for a spectacular view over the surrounding mountains and fjords.
After breaking for refreshments, we'll continue down into the valley on the other side of the pass where the quaint town of Hnífsdalur sits along the shore. The car will be waiting to take us back to Ísafjörður.
