The slow travel philosophy is a cultural change against the notion that faster is always better. It’s about seeking to do everything at the speed that gives you a chance to connect to the here and now and your experience. Slow travel is a state of mind which allows travellers to engage more fully with communities and its inhabitants along their route. Slow travel focuses on the journey more than the destination. It gives you an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the here and now in your outdoor activities.

Dive into the story and culture of this beautiful fishing village or take a tour to some of the hidden gems close by with a guide born and raised in Höfn. The walks are easy and informative and you can enjoy the magnificent nature and geology, take part in outdoor cooking, experience yoga and mindfulness out in the open, get to taste some of the areas local food in a restaurant or come for a visit and have your dinner with a local family.
