Tour description

The Ferry Baldur crosses Breiðafjörður Bay daily, traveling from Stykkishólmur on the Snæfellsnes peninsula to Brjánslækur in the north. This ferry ride significantly shortens the route between the south and mid-west of the country and the West Fjords region.

In addition to being a convenient travel option, it also offers the unique experience of a floating restaurant. Enjoy the scenery while dining, and stay connected with onboard WiFi. It’s a perfect way to blend practicality with a bit of adventure!

Get to see Flatey, one of Iceland’s gems, an island with a scarce population of five year-round inhabitants. All the houses on Flatey have been restored to reflect the island’s colorful style from 100 years ago, offering plenty to see and do. Flatey is a perfect summer escape, blending history, nature, and relaxation in a picturesque setting.

Brjánslækur is an age-old manor and parsonage located at the mouth of Vatnsfjörður. In addition to a ferry slip and an old shellfish factory, visitors can explore the protected ruins of Flókatóftir, believed to be the remnants of Hrafna-Flóki’s settlement, one of Iceland’s first settlers.

For those interested in visiting the West Fjords, the ferry Baldur offers a comfortable way to travel. During the journey, passengers can relax and enjoy stunning views of the fjord’s “innumerable” islands, making it a scenic and convenient option for exploring this beautiful region.
