Flights to Ísafjörður

Only a 40-minute flight from Reykjavík City Airport (RKV) takes you to Ísafjörður Airport (IFJ).

Ísafjörður (also written as Isafjordur, if those Icelandic letters cause headaches) is the largest town in the breathtaking Westfjords peninsula. There is something magical about flying to Ísafjörður: the flight is scenic and dramatic, but so are all domestic flights in Iceland. It’s the flight approach that is without a doubt one of a kind, and you’ll know why as you descend to the airport located at the end of this magnificent fjord.

Icelandair passengers from Europe and North America land at Keflavík International Airport (KEF). To travel to Ísafjörður by air, passengers need to first transfer from Keflavík to the city airport in Reykjavík – a distance of 50 km (31 miles).

More than just a fishing village

After your super-charged airport landing, what awaits is the wonderful capital of the Westfjords, the town of Ísafjörður. Just in case you’re wondering, this 'capital' has a population of roughly 2,700 and is essentially a small town, which is a big part of its charm. 

It's a relaxed blend of beautiful old houses, waterfront paths, and plentiful access to the beguiling nature of surrounding mountains and fjords. There's enough going on to make you feel you're in a town of a much bigger size - including great restaurants, events, and activities.

Magnificent nature on the doorstep

Ísafjörður is the gateway to some of the most rural and remote areas of Iceland. The surrounding fjords are where you’ll experience magnificent wild landscapes in a truly unique way, from giant waterfalls to empty valleys, and wilderness trails through pristine nature reserves.

If you’re looking for a personal experience with nature in near-solitude, with the option of exploring authentic Icelandic culture and meeting friendly locals full of great stories, Ísafjörður is the perfect destination.

Ski Week & fun events

Long before Ísafjörður became home to the much-loved music festival Aldrei fór ég suður (which translates as "I never went south"), the town, with its annual Ski Week, was already renowned for its superb skiing facilities and was well established as a popular Easter destination. 

The Easter Ski Week event draws skiers from all over the country to participate in fun-packed cross-country and downhill races. It's the oldest town festival in Iceland, dating back to 1935. Most of the neighboring villages have their own unique festivals, from 'swamp soccer' in Bolungarvík to a fjord swim in Flateyri that commemorates a swimming cow!
