Velvet Lady in Lonafjord in the Hornstrandir national park
We had been sitting in Akureyri wondering why – although we have had lots of hits on the web page for Iceland Highlights 2 – we still do not seem to be able to ‘sell’ any places. It could be the cost or it could be that it is 10 days – or both.
Coincidentally we received a request from one gentleman to join the trip part way through as he cannot make the dates. Although this would usually be seen as impractical, as there are no other bookings we do like to be flexible and have altered our itinerary to include a shorter trip starting on the 12th August.. To be able to fit this in with our other commitments we have now sailed Velvet Lady from Akureyri to Isafjord ourselves and will run one last 6 night trip in the wilderness of the Westfjords. The cost will be £750 a reduction from the usual price of £975. We have also altered the timings slightly to finish sailing on the 6th day in time for the evening flight to Reykjavik (18th August) instead of spending a seventh night on board and departing from Velvet Lady at 10 am on the 19th August. Feeback from some of our guests suggests this might be helpful with international flight times.
For full details and an itinerary see Westfjords Special on our website.
Earlier this season we had a fantastic time in the Westfjords, the scenery was stunning, we had a good combination of sailing wind and we managed to spot two rarities, a white tailed eagle and an arctic fox. This new trip will give us the chance to visit the Hornstrandir national park and other favourite places for one last time before we leave to go back to England.
The trip, Westfjords Special is now available to book on line.
