This tour introduces you to Iceland’s natural side. You’ll visit the pocket-sized village of Sudavik, which has a population of just 200 residents. As well as being in a picturesque spot, it’s home to the Arctic Fox Centre – a museum and research facility dedicated to Iceland’s only native land mammal. Here, you can learn about the history of these crafty creatures and get up close and personal with them. After, you’ll visit the village’s church, where you’ll be treated to a performance of traditional Icelandic folk music, which is a cross between a song and a poem. Then you’ll head out of town to check out one of Iceland’s first whaling stations. It’s no longer in operation, but you can see whale bones that’ve been unearthed from the bottom of the surrounding fjords. The drive back is a scenic one, passing long and deep fjords, as you head back to the port.
