West Tours is a tour operator located in the popular cruise port of Isafjordur. For over 30 years West Tours has been at the forefront building up the tourism industry in the Westfjords region of Iceland. We strive to be the experts in the region rather than offering tours around all of Iceland. West Tours is an independent company owned first and foremost by the local community with many of our suppliers owning small shares in our company. Although we are a small company which has seen organic growth since our humble start in 1993, we operate a highly professional operation with dedication to customer satisfaction. Each of our team members brings their own set of strengths with some having worked for years within other areas of the cruise industry in Iceland such as port agency and cruise logistics. Our offices are located a within a five minute walk from the Isafjordur cruise terminal.
Without a doubt, cruise is king here in Isafjordur. It can be roughly estimated that around 80% of tourist visiting lsafjordur are cruise passengers. We are key stakeholders in the region and industry and realize the importance of cruise for the local community and for Iceland in general. We aim to be a champion of the cruise industry in Iceland and hope to shape mutually beneficial future relationships with cruise lines, policy makers with our partners in Cruise Iceland.
As the largest independent tour provider in the Westfjords we have in conjunction with our partners also developed authentic cruise excursion experiences that have delighted cruise passengers for many years. Through our local partners we have by far the largest fleet of buses and boats in the region and can service expedition ships to the largest of cruise ships. Whether it’s the breathtaking views of the Dynjandi Waterfall, amazing local whale watching experiences, trips the bird paradise of Vigur Island or the serene seclusion of the Horndstrandir nature reserve, we have it all here in the Westfjords.
