Tour operator: Westfjords Adventures
Travel method: Bicycle
From Tálknafjörður we will cycle to Sveinseyri, with its own world of magnificent birdlife and white sandy beaches. We will visit Sellátrar, old abandoned and very remote farm, now used as a summer cabin. Though it has always been the opinion of experts that trees are not able to grow in this area, you actually find the western-most grove in Europe at Arnarstapi, settled in a stunning landscape. On the shore below are some remains of fishtermens’ huts, since until 1930 this was a popular place for fishermen to row out. It is said that Arnarstapi is an energy centre where you can recharge all your energy levels. The hot spring pool Pollurinn is located in the hillside just outside the village of Tálknafjörður. It is a great way to relax after the bicycle tour, like local fishermen have done for centuries after a long hardworking day, and admire the extraordinary view accross the fjord. On this tour you get intimate encounter with incredible nature and great birdlife. The tour is especially recommended for nature lovers and photographers. Transportation between Patreksfjörður and Tálknafjörður included in time schedule and prices. The sheer biking is approx. 4-5 hours.
