This tour by boat will take us to the island Vigur and we will also spend some time cruising in the inner parts of the Ísafjarðardjúp fjord.
Our visit will start with a stroll around part of the island. Vigur is the perfect place to observe the life of birds, the island being the habitat of an abundance of eider duck, arctic tern, puffin and black guillemot, to mention a few.
After our walk, it will be time for lunch. We will now enter the so-called Viktoríuhús, ie Viktoria´s house, named after a lady who lived here in the 1890's. The house was built in 1862 and was restored some years ago by the National Museum. At the same time the guest salon was added to the building and in here the farmer's family will treat us to a filling soup served with home-baked bread. After the meal coffee will be served and we will enjoy listening to tenor Peter John Buchan sing some songs composed by Sigvaldi Kaldalóns.
Before we board the boat again you will also have an opportunity to send a postcard from the smallest post office in Europe, which is to be found here in Vigur.
