From early May to end of July the sun does not fully set in the Westfjords (instead it dips below the horizon and stays low for a few hours, gradually gliding from West to East), creating amazing light and shadow reflections on the mountains.
And we can’t think of a better sight than the midnight sun setting on the ocean while framed by majestic mountains on both sides.
Yet this tour is not only about enjoying the midnight sun and the 24 hour daylight. It’s also about getting away from it all to an isolated and remote place in the most pristine of natural environments, where you can listen to little streams trickle down the mountainside, hear the power of the brim and the sounds of chirping birds. We might see abandoned farms, we might run into the lone resident, or we might see no signs of civilisation except a faint jeep trail. Our midnight destination is always a secret but wherever we go our goal is to get away from it all – and at a time of the day when hardly anyone else is around.
Departures on request every day of the week.
- Warm clothes and good shoes. Expect to feel chillier than during the daytime even with sun exposure, as the sunrays are much weaker at midnight
- Participants must bring their own refreshments. There will be no opportunities to buy food along the way.
