Adventure Tours + Bræðraborg Coffeehouse

Borea Adventures in Isafjordur is moving its offices to Aðalstræti 22 in time for Easter when the town fills with tourists attending the three-day I Never Went South rock festival.

Until recently the premises had been home to the Langi Mangi coffeehouse and pub, which spawned the idea of operating a coffeehouse alongside Borea Adventure´s tour business.

“We’ve begun preparing the move,” said Rúnar Óli Karlsson, partner in Borea Adventures, “and the Bræðraborg Coffeehouse will be operated in collaboration with Nanný Guðmundsdóttir and Ásgerður Þorleifsdóttir. The idea is to create a laid-back atmosphere where guests can get information about our adventure and wildlife tours, centered on our 60-foot yacht, and enjoy some light refreshment at the same time.”

Rúnar added that emphasis would be on offering quality, local fresh food.
