Port of Isafjordur (c) Isafjordur

Isafjordur

Isafjordur has a history of trade and commerce dating back to the 16th century. The port of Isafjordur is close to the most effective fishing grounds in Icelandic and east Greenland waters and is en route of fishing vessels sailing to and from these arctic waters north of Iceland.
The harbor is open 24 hours and all service is available around the clock. Port of Isafjordur has modern harbor facilities including new 190 meters long wharf with 8,0 meters depth at low tide water where vessels can stay off the pier at SW corner 15 mtr. and NA corner 30 mtr. if draft promise.
Although relatively small, Isafjordur is a bustling and widely visited harbor servicing cruise ships and cargo vessels as well as fishing vessels.
Cruise ship arrivals in Isafjordur have been steadily increasing over the last decade or so. In the year 2015, 60 ship calls have already been announced, so the outlook is good. However, we allways welcome more traffic.
