The tour arranged by our cruise ship was expensive and in a huge motor coach. We used Wild Westfjords instead and had a terrific personalized tour in a small coach, a stop in a lovely tea house (which was too small for the big coaches), and even a serenade from our guide (who had a great voice). The waterfall is beautiful, and we had a wonderful day.

Truly enjoyed our tour and our tour guides. Great history and culture tour and truly enjoyed the waterfall and the stop for a snack and one of the best desserts we ever had.

Great tour, very knowledgeable guide who, not only shared her love if Iceland, but also gave us a great insight on the close knit Icelandic families and families. Spectacular scenery during our journey with the mountains, fjords and tunnels. Dynjandi Waterfals are quite the sight, well worth the hair pin turns to get there. Enjoyable stop at Hrafnseyri farm where we enjoyed delicious homemade pastries and coffee in a turf house. During this stop we could visit a small church and an interesting museum dedicated to Iceland´s independence hero Jón Sigurðsson.

I read about the Hornbjarg cliffs hike through the Wild Westfjords website (as well as on competitor booking sites), and I was blown away by the remoteness and the beauty of the area. For anyone in know, this is far and away the most incredible and dramatic hike you will take in your life. A few considerations are critical to think about before you book: 1) can you handle a 2.5 - 3 hour boat ride (each way) in a boat that holds 16 passengers in the North Atlantic/Arctic Ocean, 2) can you hike uneven and very steep terrain, up and down, for approximately 6 hours, and 3) are you willing to get some money back and do a shorter trip assuming the weather/high seas keep the small ferry boat from going around to the Hornvík area? If you are still in, you are in for an amazing boat ride and hike. The hiking takes you from the shore steeply up a smaller mountain and ends at a long cliff with birds by the thousands on the north face. The trail then tracks along that cliff and climbs steeply to the top of a mountain and ridge line to the southeast of your initial ascent, giving you the classic view of the Hornbjarg cliffs. The descent into the lake and meadow below the cliffs and back to the boat is beautiful and tiring after so much climbing, but the views of the fjord keep you motivated to the end. The transfer on and off the shore in a zodiac or inflatable dinghy can get you quite wet if the tide is low and some waves roll through, so make sure to take one pair of extra socks. Also take however much food and water you typically need on a moderately strenuous day of hiking. We were very fortunate to have mostly sunny weather and light wind, but it can be blustery and cold on the ridge line. Finally, in my opinion, the rating of this hike being moderate effort and 3/5 is a little low, depending on your experience and fitness. It’s not terribly long in distance, but the vertical gain is significant and some of the trail is narrow and exposed to a steep drop. Enjoy!

I had written this review about a year ago but for some reason TripAdvisor posted the photo I uploaded but not the review itself. We had our tour in September 2018 and it was absolutely perfect. We had Rico as our guide and he was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the Westfjords and Iceland in general. He tailored the tour to our specific needs and did a wonderful job taking photos of our engagement at the superb Dynjandi waterfall. We even stopped to pick wild blueberries afterwords, and checked out some stunning views from high up in the mountains. I cannot recommend this tour enough and it is a memory that we will cherish for life. Photos just do not do the landscape justice. It is absolutely breathtaking.
