Take the whole family out on our comfortable sightseeing ship
Up to 1.5 Hour tour starting from Reykjavik Old Harbour everyday May 1st to August 15th.
Tour Difficulty: Easy/Family Tour
The classic puffin tour is just that...a pure classic. Take the whole family out on an easy and fun bird watching tour of the Faxaflói Bay.
See Iceland's cutest and toughest little birds, the puffins, in their natural habitat on the islands of Akurey or Lundey. Also see an incredible variety of sea birds living side by side on these little islands just of the coast of Reykjavík. Species include the majestic gannets, the plucky razorbills, the proud cormorants, the world traveling arctic tern and the list goes on and on. The summer skies are full of life making if the perfect time to explore the bay and visit the birds.
Your expert bird watching guide will name and point out to you the different types of birds, explain about their quirks and living habits in this difficult place they call home, the North Atlantic.
