Isafjordur

Where history and legend unite

Kada vas MSC krstarenje po Sjevernoj Europi odvede do sjeverozapadne točke Islanda, usidrit ćete se u Isafjorduru, gradiću drevnog podrijetla.


Tu ćete pronaći najstariju postojeću kuću na Islandu, izgrađenu 1743. godine. Na periferiji Bolungarvíka, najsjevernije lokacije zapadnih fjordova, možete posjetiti Ósvör, nekadašnje ribarsko selo, a danas muzej na otvorenom.

Povijest je vezana i uz stari grad Nedstikaupstadur gdje su se sredinom 15. stoljeća u zaljevu Isafiord najprije susreli islandski i norveški trgovci, a zatim i britanski i njemački. Ovdje je u drugoj polovici 18. stoljeća izgrađen Krambud (trgovina) koji je u 20. stoljeću pretvoren u privatnu kuću, isto kao i Faktorshus (kuća poljoprivrednika), Tjoruhus (kuća katrana) i Turnhus (kuća s tornjem) koje su se koristile kao skladišta i centri za obradu ribe. 

Ako u sklopu vašeg MSC krstarenja po Sjevernoj Europi, želite dobiti ideju o tome kako su Islanđani nekada živjeli, tada krenite na izlet u Vigur, što doslovno znači "otok u obliku koplja". U njegovim vodama ima puno morskih lavova koji se hrane morskim pticama poput njorbe, crnog gnjurca, agresivne polarne čigre (koja može napasti ljude ako se osjeća ugroženom) i obične polarne patke. 

Još jedan prirodni spektakl je Naustahvilft, "prijestolje trolova", duboka depresija u obliku polumjeseca na niskoj planini koja okružuje Isafjordur. Legenda kaže da je tu depresiju stvorio trol kojeg je sunčeva svjetlost obasjala dok je sjedio na planini s nogama u vodi.

 
Bez obzira vjerujete li u legende ili ste skloniji tome da je dolinu oblikovao led tijekom posljednjeg ledenog doba, svakako se isplati otići na ovaj kratak, ali dojmljiv izlet.

    Wild and rugged, uncompromising and mesmerisingly beautiful, geologically and volcanically active, a place of thermal springs, mountains, valleys, rivers and waterfalls: the incredible island of Iceland is all of these things. And - as everybody surely knows - the island's craggy mountainsides also provide a comfortable home for the world's remaining trolls, those formidable creatures of Norse mythology. According to a legend told by the locals of Ísafjörður, a huge troll once lived in the area and one day, he decided to go for a walk in the fjord. However, soon getting tired from all the exercise, the troll spotted a nice tall mountain high above the town that looked like the perfect spot to have a rest. But when the thickset troll sat down, his incredible weight squashed part of the mountainside, leaving a large indentation that remains visible to this day: the so-called Troll's Throne, or Naustahvilft to give the place its proper name. Situated only a few hundred metres up the mountain from the port, the Troll's Throne is a popular hiking destination for tourists and locals alike. Your walking experience up to the bowl-like "throne”, which was actually formed by a glacier, will take you over ideal hiking terrain: a good mixture of grass, soil and sheep-trodden paths. Once at the top, you will be rewarded with wonderful views over the port and the picturesque fjord. Your return hike back down the mountain to your ship marks the end of this troll-themed tour. Please note : limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only. This tour is recommended only for guests with a high fitness level. Due to the substantial walking and hiking the tour entails, it is classified a grade 4 hike.

    Leave the pier and board a boat to one of the most beautiful and remote areas of Iceland, the beaches of Hornstrandir. An hour-long cruise takes us to Hesteyri, the westernmost bay of the Glacier Fjords. With very limited lowland, this isolated spit of land is framed by steep cliffs and is set against a backdrop of two beautiful mountains. Until 1950s Hesteyri only had a small and scattered community centered around a whaling station and a herring processing factory. By joining this tour you will gain insight into the difficult lives of those living in this remote place and learn how these communites were obliged to leave when herring fisheries closed. Now a beautiful nature reserve, this is one of the wildest spots in Iceland and we can enjoy the area in all its glory during a walking tour before stopping for a light snack of Icelandic pancake, rye-bread with smoked lamb and coffee. Please note : limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only. This tour is not recommended for guests having walking difficulties or using a wheelchair. No guide during the boat trip; she will wait on the island.

    The lovely island of Vigur is a green oasis nestling in the blue waters of the Isafjardardjup fjord. In spring, the island is a nesting place for countless birds and in the summer months puffins, arctic terns, black guillemots and eider ducks can be seen in large numbers. A 30-minute boat transfer will take us to Vigur where we will take a leisurely walk around the island to discover its natural beauty and unspoilt environment. The duck's nests are carefully protected by collecting Eiderdown is still permitted during spring. Traditional farming methods are still practiced on the island and visitors can see Iceland's only windmill, built in 1840 and used to grind wheat imported from Denmark. The timeless feel is enhanced by the collection of historic houses which date back to the last centuries: Viktoria House was erected in 1862 and the second house was erected by a young priest in 1884, an ancestor of the family living in Vigur today. Before returning to Isafjordur we will see one of the smallest post offices in Europe and enjoy coffee and Icelandic cake. Please note: limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only. No guide during the boat trip; she will wait on the island. This tour is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties and using a wheelchair. The sighting of the birds cannot be guaranteed.

    The town of Isafjordur is the biggest settlement in the west fjords of Iceland and a key centre for trade and culture. The oldest part of the town, Nedstikaupstadur, features houses from the XVIII century which pay testament to Isafjordur's former importance as one of the main trading centres in Iceland. Starting at the pier, drive into the centre of the town along a narrow coastal road passing the small town of Bolungarvik; here we will visit the church and "Osvor”, an old fisherman's hut, restored in 1988. The village of Bolungarvik lies on a picturesque bay surrounded by steep mountains. The scenic drive to Isafjordur offers fantastic views of the mountains that surround the fjord. Our trip also takes us through the historic district of Isafjordur, to the Maritime Museum, located in one of the oldest houses of Iceland. Enjoy a typical Icelandic snack complete with schnapps and dried fish. Please note : limited number of guides in languages other than English. Should a tour guide for your language be unavailable, the tour will be provided in English only. Guests using a wheelchair can take part, but should be aware that there are some obstacles (steps) to reach Osvor Hut; other sites are provided with ramps.

Island

Fontane lave među ledom
Fontane lave među ledom

Odmor na Islandu je poput otkrivanja nekog drugog svijeta.

Čak i ako ste ga zamišljali, ovaj otok će vas iznenaditi. Nema puno onih koji znaju da Reykjavik, glavni grad Islanda, ima intenzivan umjetnički i društveni život. Uglavnom ne znaju ni da je islandska priroda tako bogata jer su temperature po ljeti neobično blage ili da zimi, kada je nebo obojano bojama polarne svjetlosti, nije tako hladno kao što ljudi misle. 
 
Island će vas sigurno privući svojim bazenima kipućeg blata, nevjerojatnim gejzirima, ledenjacima i vodopadima, ali i s mnogim drugim stvarima. Pokušajte se prepustiti promatranju ptica na jezeru Mývatn ili krenite na izlet gdje ćete vidjeti kitove budući da su vode Islanda najbolje mjesto na svijetu za promatranje ovih velikih stvorenja. Ako vas privlači led, posjetite Jökulsárlón, najveću zaleđenu lagunu u zemlji koja je nastala tamo gdje se ledenjak Breiðamerkurjökull susreće s vodama Atlantskog oceana. 
 
Ako se želite opustiti, morate znati da u zemlji ima više od 170 geotermalnih bazena kao što je predivna i terapeutska Plava laguna koja se nalazi četrdesetak kilometara od Reykjavika. To je veliki bazen kojeg izvor opskrbljuje vodom temperature između 37 i 39 °C, a koja je bogata mineralima i ima terapeutska svojstva.
