Who we are

Halldóra (Dóra) is born and raised in Ísafjörður and is the brains of the Cycling Westfjords operation. When she isn’t biking, she works at her knitting and clothing store Klæðakot in downtown Ísafjörður. In 2020, she graduated from Hólar University where she wrote a bachelor’s thesis on the experience of bicycle tourists in the Westfjords which paved her way into starting Cycling Westfjords.

Ómar Smári is an artist and fearless bicyclist. He is best known for creating art out of his bike adventures with his Hjólabókin (bicycle book) project which has 8 books of bicycle routes throughout Iceland. If you’ve been to the Westfjords, you’ve most likely seen his maps of the region and villages.

Nanný is an Ísafjörður native and entrepreneur. In 2013, she started the popular tourism company Borea Adventures Iceland which provides bike rentals and tours in the #Westfjords as well as expeditions to Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. She has also worked extensively in politics and has been a town representative for Ísafjörður.

Tyler first came to the Westfjords as a student at the University Centre of the Westfjords after spending 8 months biking across the United States. In the summer of 2021, he became the first known person to bike #TheWestfjordsWay. When he isn’t pedaling bikes, he is working on them at his small shop in Ísafjörður which focuses on keeping the community and tourists on well-maintained bikes.
