There is plenty to see and do: Sign up for a sightseeing tour or go on a hike, visit one of the island's interesting museums or play a round of golf, go swimming at the local outdoors pool or dine at one of the island's quality restaurants, and extend your stay by booking a room at one of the island's hotels or hostels.
Sailing from the Landeyjahöfn harbor to the Westman Islands with the ferry Herjólfur takes about 35 minutes. During the cruise, we encourage passengers to enjoy the magnificent scenery and the diverse birdlife that is visible from Herjólfur's deck.
Landeyjahöfn – The Westman Islands
The main sailing route to the Westman Islands lies to and from the Landeyjahöfn harbor. The harbor is situated west of the mouth of the Markarfljót river at Landeyjar and has been in operation since 2010. A trip from Landeyjahöfn to the Westman Islands takes only about 35 minutes.
Þorlákshöfn – The Westman Islands
In the event that the Landeyjahöfn harbor is closed, Herjólfur will sail to the Westman Islands from the Þorlákshöfn harbor (more likely to occur during the winter). Considering that it takes about three hours to sail from the Þorlákshöfn harbor to the Westman Islands, the ferry only makes two trips per day.
