We had a great time on the Vigur Island tour. The trip out by boat takes about 35 minutes. On the island you spend about an hour walking about looking at the puffins, Arctic Terns and Eider ducks. Our guide was very informative and had plenty to say about the island, the critters and the farm itself. After the walkabout,... More

West Tours offer so many different tours. We took a tour to Vigur Island to see many Puffins and see the beautiful landscape. The staff at West Tours were very friendly and helped with suggestions on the best tours to take considering the weather and our interests.

We went to this agency to book a boat trip to Hornstrandir. Since that is a wild and desolated area, we asked for informations to the desk girl to be sure to be able to afford the trek before booking the trip. She introduced to us as a real expert and told us she knew everything we needed to know... More

We did the King and Queen of Cliffs tour through West Tours. Though we had awful weather (foggy with zero visibility), the tour company cannot be faulted for that. We had a terrific guide, the boat ride out to Hornstrandir was great, and the hike was still fun even though we couldn't see much. The hike took us up to... More

A lovely trip to this beautiful island is not to be missed when you are in Isafjordur. I went on a sunny day with a little wind in the air, which is supposed to be the best condition to see the puffins. The group was split in half, English speaking and Icelandic speaking. That was perfect for my family since... More

This was a great side trip. We loved the town of Isafjordur. It was super quaint and charming. If you're into photography, you'll love it! If you are into kayaking, this is the place to do it. The tour to Vigur Island only leaves once per day at 2:00 PM. The West Tours office is located right next to the... More

My wife and I booked an early morning Kayak trip with Westtours on a recent Sunday. Though the weather was less than ideal, our guide was excellent and took us on a lovely tour of the fjord that surrounds Isafjordur, pointing out local birds and giving us a history of the area. All in all an excellent experience and highly... More

My husband and I wanted to see puffins so badly while we were in Iceland for 2 weeks. We went on one tour earlier in our trip, but didn't get to see puffins close up. If you want to see puffins, then you must go to Vigur Island. West Tours staff was awesome. You really need to book this trip... More

Our ship could not dock at Isafjord due to weather. Four of us had pre-booked and prepaid for an all-day tour with West Tours. Upon our return home yhey promptly refunded 100% of our money. We won't forget that next time. Other two ports in Iceland were awesome.
