Skagafjrur has an endless number of natural treasures, from the mountaintops to the sea and islands, from the glacial ice in the south to the outermost tips of land in the north. To take a closer look at some of this beautiful natural treasures it's sometimes best to take a boat tour and get a good look at everything from the sea side.

In the bay of Skagafjrur we've two islands, Drangey and Mlmey, and the peninsula rarhfi. All 3 of them have something special to offer from amazing basalt formations, bird life, historical stories and just overall amazing natural beauty.

The boat tours are leaving from 2 small harbours here in Skagafjrur, one being located at Hofss and one leaving from Reykarstrnd.

Tour operators

  • Drangey tours

    A boat trip out to Drangey is an adventure in itself, the island being a pearl of nature in the middle of the fjord. The island is a sheer sided palagonite rock aproximately 180m high and provides a wonderful view over the whole fjord. The bird life on the island is diverse, although the most predominant varieties are puffins and guillemots. Over the summer months (1.june - 15. august) we offer daily trips to Drangey from Reykir at 11:00 am. The trip takes on average around 4 hours, this includes the trip out to the island, the hike to the top and bird watching, whales are also often spotted on the journey to and from the island. Come and enjoy nature in all its beauty and experience Drangey in all its splendour.
