Trip Info

The small town of Ísafjörður is unique in Iceland. Its unusually well-preserved city centre dates from the 19th century and still reflects its charming history, that remains alive in the legends and stories.

Our guide meets you at the Tourist Information, dressed as a woman from the 19th century, and takes you on a walk through the city. On the way she will show you interesting places, give you an insight into the history of Ísafjörður and tell tales and stories of ancient and modern times. You will learn about the people and their living conditions, their beliefs and their culture, which is reflected in the legends. You might experience a slight shudder when told of ghosts and, as well, fascination with the mystical creatures you will hear about in the tales.

At the end of our walk we will visit our small church with it´s famous altar picture.

The walk goes only through the place without gradients.
