Journey through dramatic Ísafjörður, navigating narrow passes and sharp mountain ridges, and passing deep, sheltered fjords with farms and villages huddled on narrow strips of land. Visit the remarkable Skrúður Gardens where plant life has been coaxed from the inhospitable terrain. Head for Flateyri, a tiny village on a slender headland and a base for shark-hunting and whaling in the 19th century. Linger in the historic village exploring the old bookstore and perfectly preserved merchant's home and listen to a performance of Icelandic music in the intimate church. Later, visit the handcraft workshop to watch the local women creating their art and crafts.
