Herjolfur - Reykjavik

Affordable All Ages Nature

Directions to Herjolfur

Vestmannaeyjar (The Westman Islands) are a group of 15-18 islands that were formed by submarine volcanic eruptions. The largest island is Heimaey, a beautiful and well vegetated place with steep sea cliffs. Bird hunting and egg collecting are traditional to the islander's culture, and the traditional lifeblood of the island's economy is hunting and fishing. Vestmannaeyjar is home to the Icelandic puffin, and the location of Thjodhatid, the annual outdoor festival held on the weekend before the first Monday in August. You can get to Vestmannaeyjar by flight, but the most popular way to go is by sea. That way you can take a car with you. That's where Herjolfur comes in.

Herjolfur is a ferry, and it's the cheapest way to get to Vestmannaeyjar. In Herjolfur there are three main passenger indoor areas, a cafeteria, TV room and a lounge. You can purchase hot meals and snacks in the cafeteria. It has seating for 130 people, and in the TV room there are seats for 80 people. The seating in the lounge is very comfortable. In Herjolfur there is a children's area with toys and a television. For those who choose to enjoy fresh sea breeze and a view over the ocean on their trip, there are benches on the deck.

When traveling with Herjólfur, passengers are asked to arrive for check in no later than 30 minutes before departure. The vessel is always closed five minutes before departure. It takes around two hours to drive from Reykjavik to Landeyjahöfn. There is a parking lot for passengers at Landeyjahofn. The journey from Landeyjahofn to the Westman Islands takes around 30 minutes when weather conditions are good. For further information and booking, please visit Herjolfur's website.
