How to get here
The only way to get to Westman Islands is with a ferry. The ferry is called Herjólfur and it sails between the mainland and Westman Islands all year round. Most of the time it sails from Landeyjahöfn but sometimes, due to weather, it sails from Þorlákshöfn. The drive from Reykjavík to Landeyjahöfn is about 2 hours and from Reykjavík to Þorlákshöfn is about 45 minutes, under favorable conditions. The sailing time from Landeyjahöfn is 35 minutes and from Þorlákshöfn it’s 2 hours and 45 minutes. See more information about the ferry here.
Once you arrive at the beautiful Westman islands, you can choose to walk since the distances are quite short. If you wish to catch a ride, your best bet is to call for a taxi. The local taxi is called Eyjataxi and the phone number is (+354) 698 2038
If you are staying at our lovely pier apartments, you are right outside your front door when you arrive with the ferry.
