Patreksfjörður
(c) agh

Patreksfjörður

Patreksfjörður, vivid and charming, is the largest town in the Southern Westfjords. It is predominantly a fishing town with various services and public administrations. The town is rich of commercial and cultural history, the birthplace of many well known Icelandic artists and a base for English, French and German fishermen, merchants and naval mariners in early days. Just a few kilometers outside the town there is an excellent nine hole golf course, as well as many beautiful hiking trails.

The harbor is open 24 hours and all service is available around the clock. Two small ships can be alongside at the same time at the pier of 230 meters in length. All sizes of cruise ships can be accommodated at anchor. It takes tender boats 5 to 10 minutes to reach the port, which is about 10 minutes walk from the town.



Port attractions



  1.  Látrabjarg

    Bjargtangar að Látrabjarg is the western most point in Iceland and in Europe. Land meets sea head-on at the 14 km cliff of Látrabjarg, one of the world's biggest seabird colonies. The steep landscape, small population and fertile seas make the region a birdwatcher's paradise. Látrabjarg is an exciting landmark of human geography and a spectacular location. Up to 444 meters high, the cliffs are occupied by millions of Puffins, Gannets, Guillemots and Razorbills.
  2.  Rauðasandur

    Rauðasandur (Red Sand Beach) is a golden red sand beach, enlivened by countless seabirds and seals. In Rauðasandur you can take a stroll on the seemingly endless beach or enjoy a nice cup of coffee and enjoy the spectacular view, where Snæfellsjökull glacier on Snæfellsnes peninsula imperiously rivets your attention in the background.
  3.  Dynjandi Waterfall

    Dynjandi is the largest waterfall in the Westfjords and one of the most impressive waterfall in Iceland. It is 100 meters high and consists of six small waterfalls that together form a spectacular and thunderous power. Many consider it to be the most beautiful waterfall in Iceland due to its natural elegance. It is located in Arnarfjörður.
  4.  The Samúel Jónsson outdoor museum

    In the period of 1947-1967, a local farmer in Selárdalur, Samúel Jónsson, built a church, an art museum and outdoor art pieces, all on his own. Samúel is often referred to as the artist with the child's heart. He created his own fantasy world consisting of creatures and miniatures versions of famous buildings, such as St. Peter's church in Rome, the Alhambra palace in Granada and the fountains of Rome. All made out of poured concrete. Today these artifacts form a small museum, devoted to the spirit of the man who, even though he never traveled outside his home region, had aspirations to do great things.
  5.  Hnjótur Folk Museum

    Hnjótur is located in Örlygshöfn and is therefore an ideal stop on the way to Látrabjarg cliff. In the museum there is an unique collection of old objects from the area, offering a clear insight into the daily life in centuries past. Also on display are many objects connected to the history of economic activity in the first half of the 20th century, especially fishing and boats. These objects provide a good insight into people's struggle for existence and the resourcefulness it took to survive under harsh conditions. Nature, community life and the area's history have attracted many tourists to the area.
