Description

Please note: This tour includes hotel pick up and drop off service. Simply select the pick up place of your preference from the list under the availability section and our driver will be on his way!

Here is your chance to experience the 'clowns of the sea' in their natural environment.

Stop by our ticket office at the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík and exchange your pre-paid voucher for admission tickets. One of our expert guides will meet you onboard one of our comfortable and stable boats, docked at the floating pier in front of our Wildlife Exhibition. 

Depending on the tides and conditions on the islands our captains will take you to either Engey, Akurey or Lundey, one of three islands well known for their plentiful birdlife. We cannot go on the islands, but try and get as close as possible without disturbing the nesting birds. 

In addition to puffins, you have the opportunity to view other birds such as eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots and cormorants.

The island's shores are rocky but our captains know the best spots to get close to the puffins without disturbing any natural behaviour. If the weather is right we might even turn off the engines so that you can enjoy the nature better and listen to the bird's calls. 

During the tour, the crew will tell you interesting facts and tales about the puffins and the surroundings. As the birds are small in size, we recommend bringing a good zoom lens for 'close up' photography or binoculars (also available board).
