    The Hornstrandir nature reserve is a place of magnificent untouched beauty and wildlife. The sheer basalt mountains stretch from the sea to the sky chaotically divided by deep fjords, secluded alcoves and valleys.

    At the coastline the relentless power of the ocean has molded towering sea cliffs, richly populated by birds. Many of the alcoves and scurries of the coast are home to an abundance of seals. Inland the crawling glaciers of the last ice age have hewn ancient mountain passes and lakes into the rugged peninsula and there the arctic fox wanders in its natural environment.

    Since the settlement of Iceland up until the middle of the 20th century the area was populated by the toughest of Icelandic fishermen and craftsmen. Many of them making their livelihood from crafting unsurpassed vessels for the North Atlantic Ocean. Hornstrandir is now empty of permanent settlers but their abandoned homes and workshops are scattered around the area, nestled deep in the fjords and valleys. You can be sure that trekking through the Hornstrandir will leave you amazed and packed with memories that will last a lifetime.

    The Lost Fjords trip is a full on backpacking trip where we are self sufficient, carrying our equipment but get food drops on various places with the passenger boats.

    There will be a short briefing and final preparation meeting at 8:00 PM in our café Bræðraborg the night before departure.

    Difficulty: Challenging.

    Guests flying back to Reykjavik can catch a flight the morning after the trek is done or later.
