Express Puffin TOUR DESCRIPTION:
1 Hour expertly guided Puffin Express tour on a 12 seater RIB boat leaving daily from Reykjavík Old Harbour
Age & Height Limit: 10 years & 145 cm
The express tour is operated in our custom made RIB boats. They are specially designed to get you as close as possible to the birdlife on the islands. When possible we can switch off the engines completely to give the birds (and you) even more peace and quiet to enjoy nature.
During the tour your guide and captain will tell you interesting facts and tales about the puffins and all of their neighbors. Expect to see Arctic Terns (no other birds flies a longer distance), gannets, razorbills, skuas and many other types of sea birds that call the Faxaflói Bay their home.
The summer is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands just outside Reykjavík City. Puffins, auks, cormorants and an incredible variety of sea birds dominate the skies and sea cliffs just a few minutes sailing from the Old Harbour.
Because the RIBs are the fastest boats in Reykjavík harbour on this short tour you will spend the majority of your time with the birds, out at the islands enjoying nature.
