Sailing in Skagafjörður

nature, culture and history trip

We start the trip from your hotel or guesthouse in Akureyri,
start driving from there throw amazing mountain road to skagafjörður and in a small town called Hofsós were we go sailing.
we sail around and take you to the most beautiful places of the Eastern Coast of Skagafjörður, North Iceland.
This trip takes you to Málmey, a very well preserved island where puffins (lundi in Icelandic) and guillemots (langvía) love to nest during the warmer months. There are high chances that they invite themselves during the cruise!
What a better way to end the tour than going to Hofsós well-known swimming pool? There you can enjoy an infinite view over the Ocean and still see Drangey and Malmey in the distance.
after good and relaxing swimming it is time to head back to Akureyri, and we will take a few moments maybe to enjoy the picture spots that Skagafjörður has to offer on the way back.
