Ferry Baldur crosses Breidafjördur Bay daily from Stykkisholmur on the Snæfellsnes peninsula to Brjanslaekur in the north. A ferry ride considerably shortens the route between the south and mid-west of the country and the West Fjords region. It also gives you the opportunity to experience a floating restaurant.

  • Please remember that you must book in advance for car reservations.
  • Tickets must be picked up at the Seatours office at least 30 min. before departure.
  • During the winter time some roads in the Westfjords are unpassable. Please look at the road conditions here.

The Breioafjorgur Fjord would be a very lovely place for a lunch cruise in summer especially if the weather is fine. Though I went for a lunch cruise on a ferry on a rainy day, the imperfect weather did not make this short tour around the fjord as the Icelandic seafood soup with bread was a wonderful surprise to most foreigner tourists on board and soem of us requested one more bowl of it. I openly said to the big fellow who served us with the soup that the soup was very nice as the scallops, fish and shrimps were all fresh local seafood and I was surprised to have two bowls of soup full of them! The rain might be a disappointment to most who expected nice shots of the basaltic islands which we kept seeing one after another in the harbour and the resultant wet floor on board a hazard for us, but the sudden sighting of a few healthy adult sheep on one of the uninhabited islands was liek an eye-opener to us in the rain. The cliffs consisting of basaltic columns on these islands are not comparable to the huge hexagonal basaltic columns ones with a diameter of about 6 feet found in the geological parks in Hong Kong, but the series of such small islands was quite a scene for me indeed. The toru was on a ferry which was basic with long tables and chairs for passengers and you may buy drinks and snacks on board. The sea was not bumpy and so the ride was reasonably comfortable and not too windy despite the rain of the day. I had been to the fishing village of Stykkisholmur and I did nothign more than takign a few beautiful pictures along the shore in July 2013. This second, winter visit was a very wonderful one despite the poor weather. If you go there on a sunny day in summer or winter, you will love the village and the fjord. Visited February 2015

The Viking Sushi adventure boar tour goes around different islands in the bay and offers great clift and bird watching opportunities. We saw the elusive white-tailed eagle too during our trip! For those that love sashimi, this is the tour for you! Near the last part of the tour, the crew will haul up fresh seafood from the sea. There will be too much for everyone, so it’s like an endless supply of raw scallops and sea urchin!


A change from driving if going to the Westfjords We had a day to drive from Reykjavik to Isafjörður. We could have driven all the way, but that would have stopped us going on the Snæfellsnes peninsula (even though we did not have time – or the right weather to visit Snæfell itself). That is the problem of a schedule – you can’t afford to miss the boat. Departures from Stykkishólmur 0900 and 1545. I gather it is best to do it this way round – because there is nothing to do at Brjánslækur on the peninsula side. The boat is well designed.

A comfortable ~150 passenger boat allows great views of thousands of nesting seabirds including puffins, cormorants, fulmars and kittiwakes. The boat stops as close as possible to the searocks/islands with nest covered ledges. Ad an additional bonus the boat stopped to view nesting White-tailed Sea Eagles. Because of the eagle's endangered status the boat did not approach as close as it did to the rocks with commoner birds.
