Hornstrandir

Untouched nature & exquisite beauty

The Hornstrandir Nature Reserve is located on the Hornstrandir peninsula of Iceland, the country's north-western most point.
 
The are was abandoned of all inhabitants during World War II, and was officially named a nature reserve in 1975. Despite its reserve status, most of the land is privately owned and landowners have built summerhouses for private use. The number one inhabitant of Hornstrandir is the arctic fox, where the mammals are protected from hunting. 
 
While organised boat tours to the nature reserve are operated in June, July and August, visitors should know that the nature in Hornstrandir is very delicate. As such, there are no motorized vehicles, horses, outside animals, or campfires allowed. All those visiting must also carry out everything they bring into the area.
