Reykjavík Birdwatching Tours

Visit The Puffins, The Skuas, The Auks and all the lively sea birds of Faxaflói Bay on our bird watching tours from Reykjavík´s Old Harbour.

The Atlantic Puffin is both captivating and peculiar. There are many reason why locals, artists and tourists alike are seduced by these brightly colored seabirds. They are calm while nesting and can dig burrows with their beaks and wings..but seem manic in their flying style because of their small wings. Puffin wings can beat up to 440 times per minute. Their curious behaviors and unique appearance are a couple of the reason we are drawn to Iceland to catch a glimpse.

The Atlantic puffin travels to land in the summer to nest during the warmer months. We have the largest Atlantic puffin colony in the world, more than half the population comes to Iceland to nest in June, July and August. This is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands just off the coast of Reykjavik. Puffins, Auks, Gannets along with an incredible variety of seabirds dominate the skies and sea cliffs just a few minutes sailing from the Old Harbor. 

It is a unique and special experience to have them so close to land.
