Hornstrandir is a peninsula in the far Northwest of Iceland, with complex coast lines advancing on the cold waters of Denmark Strait – in front of Greenland. It has been uninhabited for several decades. And the only way to get there is on foot or by boat.

Six hundred years before the discovery of the mythical southern Cape Horn, the first settlers baptised the northernmost cliffs in Iceland “Horn-bjarg”. In viking language this literally means “the rocky horn”. Or, if you wish, Cape Horn…

This Iceland has little in common with the highlands and rift in the center of the country. In contrast, it has a special charm with its wild coasts and oceanic environments. The cliffs, sometimes dominating Greenland Sea over 500 meters high, are home to colonies of northern fulmars, murres, atlantic puffins and black-legged kittiwakes. It’s also the area of the arctic fox…

I propose to guide you through a hiking tour in the Hornstrandir peninsula. Leaving from Jökulfirðir (“the glacier fjord”), we will explore the bays and mountains of the peninsula’s oceanic façade:

  • Aðalvík, “the first bay”
  • Fljótavík, “the  driftwood bay”
  • Hælavík
  • Hornvík
  • Látravík…

An incredible trekking experience in Iceland is waiting for you! I would be thrilled to guide you through these bays and mountains. Contact me for more information!
