We booked a tour for northen lights with them. We should have had a 50% refund if we did'nt see anything. We did'nt see any aurora borealis at all but we pay the full price. They don't want to pay us back. They pretend that was the deal. If they told us on that day that there will be no... More

My 3 friends and I used West Tours to book a guide to hike Hornstrandir Nature Preserve. The trip, run by Boreas, was excellent. When I realized some days later that I had left my vest, camera with all of my trip photos, and my sunglasses in a bar adjacent to West Tours office after the trip, I phoned West... More

We booked this tour through Royal Caribbean based on the hype that this place was "teeming with bird life". Imagine our surprise when we got to the island and were told that all the birds had left 3 weeks earlier. All we saw was a handful of ducks swimming around in the water, and the tour guide didn't know what... More

I booked the Panorama tour through West Tours. Karen was very helpful and quick to respond to all my questions. I also found that their packing list on their website was extremely helpful. I was super glad to have brought an extra pair of socks. You really feel like a new person at the end of the hike just by... More

We booked this through wild west fjords but the tour was operated by west tours. The weather was fantastic, the boat ride out took 2.5hrs with amazing scenery. Boat crew were excellent. On the way back we saw hump backs breeching on several occasions very close to the boat. The hike itself but very challenging. You will need to be... More

Rented 2 bikes for a day’s tour around the coast from Isafjordur to Bolungarvik. The tour was on our own, but the bikes provided were of good quality and good information was provided for the most feasible route to take, in the time allocated. Tour was along the coast, mostly over bike paths or the deserted coastal road from Isafjordur... More

My husband and I booked an afternoon whale watching tour by visiting the West Tours office early in the morning. At that time staff didn't know whether the tour would have enough people to go, but they took my number so they could call and let us know, which worked out great. Our tour operator Siggi was wonderful from helping... More

This tour group was wonderful! I had missed another booked day tour and they helped me find another tour, and didn't laugh too hard when I admitted to getting lost in a town as small as Isafjordur. They even helped me with a reservation at Torhusid. They turned a pretty frustrating day into a great day! Thanks West Tours!

Had a spare afternoon in Isafjordur and found these folks at the Traveler Information Center offering a 3 hour boat tour to Vigur Island at a good price. Had a nice ride over and a great guided tour of the island with close encounters with all sorts of local birds and seals, followed by a large selection of home made... More
