Invite your girlfriend for poetry

The café area is a cosy place; the walls are tastefully decorated with pictures of a number of different bridges around Iceland. The hand-painted tables deserve special mention, too; each with a different map on it, showing the direction from one of Iceland's towns right to the bakery and each one inscribed with a small poem!

Bread Bowl-with a difference
A very tasty idea is the bread bowl. Take a round loaf, cut off the top, scoop out the insides and pour in fresh, hot soup. You may have had bread with soup before-but never like this. It was a delicious lunch-especially with the buns or sandwiches filled with a variety of salads, meats and cheeses. Hot pizza is also available and on Thursdays, the bakery serves a traditional Icelandic fish dish. Everything is hand-made here with the healthiest of ingredients. The delicatessen has a range of natural, locally-produced herbal teas and jams, fish oils and fresh pesto.

Après-ski Party
The bakery aims to provide the best possible service. You can order ahead-handy for groups and parties. After skiing the slopes less than 10 min away, it's the ideal place to come to the bakery to warm up over coffee or soup and some of those delicious pastries with your friends.

You'll find the bakery right behind the Glerártorg shopping centre.

Visit Kaffi Ilmur in one of the oldest houses in beutiful downtown Akureyri. Enjoy delicious coffee and cakes, soups, saladbar, some light fare and drinks as well as tradition and history.

One of the oldest houses in Akureyri has opened its doors for visitors.

Built in 1911-16, in what is now the centre of Akureyri's walking street, Kaffi Ilmur started out as a saddler's shop. Later, it became a goldsmith's, overlooking the fjord before the land was extended and more shops were built.

Today, after extensive restoration, the granddaughter of Ingmars, the saddler, has opened a café, enabling visitors to take a step back in time, surrounded by the original walls, pictures and furniture - as well as the novel use of the former flooring and roof and some of the artifact excavated from the area.

With the healthy lunches served upstairs and the delicious snacks served with the drinks downstairs, this is a winning combination that is very attractive to customers. On warm days, you can sit outside at the tables, sheltered from any wind.

It's easy to feel like you're eating with Ingimar, back in the early 1900's. It still feels like his home. The lunches are designed to be both wholesome and healthy, whilst the snacks are both traditional Icelandic favorites and fresh creations.

It's lovely spot to take a break from sightseeing or shopping while enjoying Eyjafjörður - the beautiful fjord in which Akureyri lies.

Bryggjan Grindavík

Miðgarður 2, 240 Grindavík

Bryggjan Grindavik is a Fisherman's Cafe/Restaurant by the Grindavik Harbour in South West Iceland. The building was originally built in 1980 a by the brothers Kristinn and Adalgeir Johansen to house their Net Making Business. As the years passed and times changed, in 2009 the brothers transformed a portion of the building into a little cafe called Bryggjan (Pier). Since then, this little cafe won over the hearts and minds of the locals as well as travellers traveling through Grindavik. The brothers had a vision of integrating the successful cafe with the Net Making Shop even further. In 2018, new owners took over the restaurant and the building, and have now turned this vision into reality. In May 2019, the new addition, the Bryggjan Grindavik Netagerðin (Net Making Shop) dining hall opened with an extended selection of traditional Icelandic dishes in the spirit of the original little cafe, which is still operated in it´s original form.

It was founded in 1930 by Sesselja Hreindís Sigmundsdóttir (1902-1974). It is a small village set out in the countryside, characterized by vegetation, open common spaces and buildings that nicely co-exist with the landscape. Solheimar is blessed with enough space for residential and common housing and there are ideal conditions for outdoor activities in the village, which play a big part in the residents' health and well-being. The Solheimar community focuses on the growth and development of man and nature. The overarching social goal is to provide individuals of various backgrounds the opportunity to work, live, and socialize.

The activities in Solheimar are diverse. In the village, there are organic greenhouses, both for vegetable cultivation and nonfood plants, as well as a forestry, in fact the only organic forestry in Iceland. There is also a shop/gallery in Solheimar, a café, a bakery, guesthouses and many art venues throughout the year. There are six workshops in the village including a candle workshop, ceramics, weaving, carpentry, fine art atelier, paper-making workshop and an herbal workshop that makes soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc.

The people of Solheimar are great hosts and everyone is welcome to visit Solheimar. Volunteers, both long and short term, many for the internship program, have been and continue to be vital to the community's functioning. Solheimar has actually become a tourist destination of sorts as well with 30,000 to 35,000 people visiting each year. The village is host to a number of cultural, social, and sporting activities of interest. Check out the "What's Going On" section for current events.

Simbahöllin

Fjarðargata 5, 470 Þingeyri

Simbahollin is a restored grocery shop, originally built in 1915. Now it houses a cozy coffee house and cultural venue. We serve quality coffee and espresso drinks, homemade cakes and food made with local ingredients, and of course our famous Belgian waffles with rhubarb jam.

HORSE RENTAL:
During summer we offer visitors daily tours through the valleys of the 'Westfjord Alps' near Þingeyri, crossing rivers and heading out towards the black sand beaches along the fjord. Horse riding is an intimate way of experiencing raw Icelandic nature, and getting off the beaten track into the middle of some of the Westfjord´s most breathtaking scenery.

During the summer season we have two standard Sanda River Riding tours at 10:00 and 13:00, and the Valley to Sea tour at 13:30. Please see below for details on the two summer tour options. If possible, kindly book a day in advance.

From September to December our horses live wild in the valley, but the rest of the year we are open for custom tours upon request.

BIKE RENTAL:

Biking can be a wonderful way to explore the Westfjords at your own pace and experience the nature and terrain in Iceland. We offer professional mountain bikes for rent on a full- or half-day basis. Just outside Þingeyri there are a number of routes for riders of all experience levels.

Prices For Bike Rental:
Whole day (10am - 10pm): 10.000 ISK
Half day (after 1pm): 7.500 ISK
Included: bike, helmet, repair kit and a map. Pickup in the coffee house.
If possible, kindly book a day in advance.

Riding Routes:
For experienced riders, the legendary Svalvogar route is a circle around a peninsula leading from Dýrafjorður into the next fjord, Arnarfjorður. One part is carved directly out of the steep rocks, other parts follow the shores so closely that you have to be aware of the changing tides. It's a whole day activity that takes you through breathtaking scenery, impassable by regular cars and best experienced on a mountain bike. Keep in mind that the route can be extremely challenging; the full loop takes riders over rough terrain and over the Kaldbakur mountain pass.

The 49 km can be done in 8 hours (for experienced riders).

For those who are up for a bit of a challenge but don´t want to scale the mountain pass, biking out to the lighthouse at the end of the peninsula and back is a great option. The round-trip ride typically takes about 4 hours.

Other more leisurely rides include cycling down to the waterfall at the bottom of the fjord and circling back along the other side. The route is approximately 25km of flat road and takes about 4 hours.

Feel free to ask in the coffeehouse for more information about cycling routes.

Opening hours this summer: 10:00-18:00 every day.

We are also an artist residency in the winter time. For more info isit: www.westfjordsresidency.com

Láki tours

Nesvegur 5, 350 Grundarfjörður

Láki Tours offers responsible whale watching tours in West Iceland. We also operate puffin tours and sea angling trips from Grundarfjörður in Snæfellsnes.

Whale Watching in Snæfellsnes
West Iceland is a paradise for whale enthusiasts and famous for its unique whale species. Snaefellsnes is the only area in Iceland where orcas are seen on a regularly base. Another unique species around Snaefellsnes are sperm whales. Sperm whales are the largest toothed whales in the world and one of the deepest diving whales. Other species we regularly see on our whale trips are humpback whales, minke whales, pilot whales, dolphins, and sometimes even blue whales. During winter, our 3-hour whale watching tours start from Grundarfjörður. In summer, we operate our whale trips from Ólafsvík. Our tours take place on a comfortable boat and are suitable for the whole family. Seeing the magnificent landscape around the glacier and the famous mount Kirkjufell from sea is an additional highlight.

Puffin tours from Grundarfjörður
A nature reserve on the nearby island Melrakkaey attracts hundreds of puffins and other seabirds. Our one-hour tour on a traditional oak boat offers the maximum potential to see these amazing birds in their nesting environment. It is wonderful to see puffins lined up along the edge of the cliffs like sentries on watch while the other birds wade and warble through the waves around the island with its basalt columns. A slow cruise around the island gives photographers a golden opportunity to capture the variety of birds on the island through their lenses. This amazing trip is not just about birds - the setting for the trip with Mt. Kirkjufell dominating the scenery also lends enchantment to the view.

Sea-angling & birdwatching from Grundarfjörður
On this 2-hours boat tour we head out to the nearby island, Melrakkaey, a nature reserve where many birds nest, such as puffins, shags, cormorants, kittiwakes and more. We sail close to the cliffs to get the best view and to photograph these beautiful ocean birds. Then we move into deeper waters for some sea-angling. Each passenger is given a fishing rod to try to hook a fish or two and for this, all necessary fishing equipment is provided. It is all action and excitement on board as the thrill of the chase is felt with passengers trying to catch a big one.

Steinasafn Petru

Sunnuhlíð, Fjarðarbraut 21, 755 Stöðvarfjörður

Ljósbjörg Petra María Sveinsdóttir was interested in stones all her life and started to collect them in earnest in 1946.

Most of her stones were found in Stöðvarfjörður and other places in East Iceland because Petra didn´t go much looking for stones in other parts of the country.

In 1974, Petra decided to open her home for all those that wished to look at her stones. Petra´s receives many visitors each year and it has become one of the most popular tourist destinations in East Iceland.

It´s obvious to all those that visit Petra´s, that she was an efficient stone collector but not many people know that she collected more than stones. Petra collected marked pens, cups, and numerous other small paraphernalia and for most of her life, she collected eggs, shells, and conches.

For sure, Petra´s house has slowly acquired the appearance of a nature museum, but first and foremost, it´s a home.

Open from June 1st to August 31st, seven days a week from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Viking World

Víkingabraut 1, 260 Reykjanesbær

Vikingaheimar is the home of the Viking Ship Íslendingur (the Icelander). Built in 1996, Icelander is an exact replica of the famous Gokstad
ship, a remarkable archaeological find of an almost completely intact Viking ship, excavated in Norway in 1882.
Captain Gunnar Marel Eggertsson was inspired to build a replica of this beautiful ship based on his own background as shipbuilder and sailor. He copied the original nail for nail. In the year 2000, with a grant from the Leifur Eiríksson Commission of Iceland, he sailed from Iceland to New York, a journey of 4200 nautical miles. His voyage brought world-wide attention to Leif Eiriksson's and Bjarni Herjólfsson's discovery of America, dated, according to the Icelandic sagas, to exactly 1000 A.D.
Building Icelander was an extraordinary achievement;at 23 metres long, 5.25 meters wide and with a holding capacity of 80 tons (by modern standards), it took 2 years of effort.

The sail is 130 square meters and the mast is 18 meters in length. Made from pine and oak, scholars believe this was the most common type of ship in use during the Viking Age.
Vikingaheimar is also a home to the exhibition The North Atlantic
Viking Saga, originally shown at the Smithsonian Institution during the summer of 2000. Launched in Washington D.C. by King Hakon of Norway, and with a State Dinner at the White House, it then traveling to 6 other cities throughout North America. This exhibition, like the sailing of Icelander, celebrated the millennium anniversary of the Viking discovery of North America, shedding light on the latest scholarly research into the Norse settlement and explorations of unknown lands.
Gunnar Marel and his crew of 8 left Iceland on Icelandic Independence day, the 17th of June, with a send off from the Prime Minister of Iceland. When it finally arrived in New York on October 5th-where it was greeted by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and Mayor Rudolf Guiliani--the ship had made stops at 22 harbors. In addition to the festivities with kings, queens, presidents and mayors, when the ship arrived, visitors also streamed to see it while it was docked at each location, all told about 450,000 people came on board.
These two fine projects, both celebrating Iceland's central role in the discovery of North America 1000 years ago by the Norse Vikings, have now found a permanent home in Vikinga Aldan (Viking Wave), the central building on the Vikingaheimar grounds. A spectacular modern building, it also offers beautiful views of the surrounding bay, Faxaflói.
