Afterwards, your ship passes the cliffs of Londrangar and joins the tiny fishing village of Arnarstapi, which offers splendid multicolour lava formations and an abundance of bird-life. After a walk around, return to your ship through Budir, famous for its black lava and yellow-sand beach. Continue over Frodarheidi Heath to the north coast of the peninsula back to Grundarfjördur.
Visit the small town of Isafjördur to discover its old wooden houses that bear witness to the town's long history. For centuries Isafjördur has been the largest fishing town in the area and a center of export and trade. Get a glimpse of everyday life in Isafjördur as you walk around the town accompanied by a guide. Experience its spirit and meet locals in their element. Steep, towering mountains of the Western Fjords provide shelter for the lively harbor at the heart of the town. Colorful houses built with corrugated iron give the bustling center a friendly and almost mythical aura. Through time Isafjördur has also played a significant role in Iceland’s national history and is still one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the country.
In the afternoon take a Zodiac trip to Vigur cliffs nested by Eiderducks, Puffins, Arctic Terns, Black Guillemots and various other birds in large numbers.
In the evening travel by Zodiac to land at the tiny island of Grimsey, which lies directly on the Arctic Circle. Evening is the best time to visit this place; while many travelers come here in order to cross the invisible line into the Arctic Circle, the island is also and excellent vantage point to observe the Midnight Sun. View majestic basalt rocks and bird colonies nesting along the jagged cliffs - keep your eyes out for the "clowns of the sea," better known as Atlantic Puffins.
Your tour finishes in Húsavík where you reboard the Sea Spirit. Husavik is famous as a whaling village and for the high probability of spotting whales in the area. Be on deck this evening to watch for humpback, minke, fin, orca, and sei whales, along with dolphins and harbor porpoises.
