Tour Description

two icelandic puffins

A happy couple

There are about 30.000 puffins nesting on the islands off the coast of Reykjavik and we are only a 15 minute boat ride away!

We sail out from the old harbour in Reykjavik and it only takes us about 15 minutes to reach the Puffin island, Akurey. On the journey out you will be able to view Reykjavik from the seaside [remember your camera] and the guide will also share information about the buildings & islands that can be spotted along the way.

puffin colony iceland

The Puffin colony is quite big!

The islands we visit are covered with small hills and slopes and both are well known for their colorful birdlife. The island’s shores are rocky but our boat Old Skuli is specially designed to take us as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow draft. When we arrive to the islands we turn off the engine so our passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings.

Our expert guide will tell you all the facts and fun stories about the cute Puffins and other wildlife that might be seen on the tour.
