Did you know that you that there's a ferry that takes you – and your car — over Breiðafjörður fjord? Great option for those who are visiting the Westfjords and don't have too much time on their hands.
Ferry Baldur crosses Breidafjördur Bay daily from Stykkisholmur on the Snæfellsnes peninsula to Brjanslaekur in the north. A ferry ride considerably shortens the route between the south and mid-west of the country and the West Fjords region. It also gives you the opportunity to experience a floating restaurant. WIFI on board.
With a total gross tonnage of 1,677 tons, Baldur is 68.3 meters long and 11.6 meters wide. The vessel reaches a maximum speed of 14 nautical miles, which means that it takes about two hours and 45 minutes for the vessel to sail from Stykkishólmur to Brjánslækur. Fully equipped with the latest nautical and safety technology, Baldur has a capacity of 280 passengers and 49 cars (info from www.seatours.is).
This tour is southbound – from Brjánslækur to Stykkishólmur.
