Herjólfur Ferry to Vestmannaeyjar islands

The Herjólfur ferry usually departs from Landeyjahofn harbor 31 km east of Hvolsvollur village and the journey takes 35 minutes. When the weather conditions are bad with high waves the Landeyjahofn harbor can get closed. In those cases the ferry departs from Ţorlakshofn village further to the west and the journey takes 2 hours & 45 minutes. This usually happens during the winter months but can occasionally happen during summer as well.
