  • We had a great time with Gumby in Isafjordur and the surrounding area. First off, who goes to the West Fjords for their first time over Christmas? My husband, I tell you. But I'm glad we did! He tried 5 different tour companies to find someone to give us a tour on Christmas Day before he found this one (who can blame someone for wanting to be with their family on the biggest holiday of the year?). Gumby was very gracious and even bought us a Christmas present--a book about the Yule lads. So thoughtful! He picked us up at 10 am, a little over an hour before sunrise so he could have us in position to watch the sunrise from the place he deemed most beautiful. And he wasn't wrong! It was a beautiful day and shared history and interesting information with us from his headset microphone all along the way. He dropped us off at a breathtaking waterfall and let us explore around on our own. He was super knowledgeable and it was great to hear stories from a local. We felt so educated by the end of the day! He is an excellent driver and my boys loved his Super Jeep! We were blessed with amazing weather so we have fabulous pictures of our few hours of sunlight sightseeing on Christmas day. We will be coming back, for sure!
