Ferries in Iceland

Ferries in Iceland

Although most of Iceland is accessible by road, either by car or bus, ferries are also a good way to cover large distances and save time.

Ferry to the Westfjords

One of the most popular ferry journeys in Iceland is the route between the Snaefellsnes Peninsula and the Westfjords. In particular, the boat trip from Stykkishólmur to Brjánslækur takes around 3 hours, saving almost an hour and many kilometres compared to the same journey by car. Many people choose to take the ferry to the Westfjords to save driving on the winding and often poorly maintained roads in this region. Depending on the season, a one-way trip on this ferry costs from 4,460 kr (US$ 32.30) per passenger (plus from 4,460 kr (US$ 32.30) per vehicle).

Ferry to Vestmannaeyjar

The ferry is the only way to access this beautiful archipelago located off the south coast of Iceland, famous for being one of the best spots for puffin sightings in the whole country. The ferry service to the Vestmannaeyjar Islands costs approximately 1,320 kr (US$ 9.60).
