The Fjord Trail: fascinating fjords and amazing views


The Fjord Trail: fascinating fjords and amazing views

The mountains of the east rise dramatically from sea level  up to over 1200 m providing some of the most beautiful coastal scenery.  The Fjord trail follows faint but often marked paths, from fjord to fjord, over high and sometimes snowy passes,  down rich valleys with arctic woodlands and abundant flowers. Along the way you will enjoy wonderful geology,  great flocks of  eider ducks at every inlet, close encounter with puffins, seals an the occasional reindeer herd. Explore mountains built from thousands of lava-layers, lush green valleys and  river crossings making every moment an experience.

Seyðisfjörður to Skálanes over to the tranquil, remote Mjóifjörður. From Mjóifjörður continue along the trail to reach the fishing town of Neskaupstaður  or take the scheduled Fjardaferdir boat and enjoy spectacular views while on the look out for puffins, seal and whales. From Norðfjörður the trail continues to Hellisfjörður, formerly a large whaling station and Viðfjörður and a detour to Barðsnes for some great geology ( an ancient volcano and a petrified forest buried in ash some 12 million years ago). Follow the trail leading to the deserted inlet of Vöðlavík and enjoy the brilliant views and awesome mountains carved by glaciers long gone. Finally the lovely old fishing village of Eskifjörður .
 
This trail begins in Seyðisfjörður along the fjords ending Eskifjörður. It can be done fjord by fjord or you can combine it with the Víknasloðir trail.
