Tour description

On this exciting 1 hour tour around Faxaflói Bay and the islands of Engey, Lundey and Viðey, you’ll have a chance to get up close to colonies of endearing puffins and many other migrating bird species, as well as enjoying the extraordinary backdrop of the majestic Mount Esja and the city’s colourful skyline.

Depending on the time of your visit, the mountains may be capped with ice and snow, or coloured bright purple, covered with a carpet of summer lupins. At any time of the year, Reykjavík is always a stunning city to see from the water. During the summer months, our voyages will pass close to the famous puffin colonies of Faxaflói Bay.

If that is not enough, on this tour, you don’t have to worry about overcrowding or not getting the right spot to see the whales. You will be sailing on Faxaflói bay in a small group which will make your experience personal, meaningful and memorable!

What´s included

✓ An hour exciting tour in a small group 12-seater RIB boat.
✓ Reykjavík sightseeing with panoramic views of the Harpa Concert Hall and Sun Voyager.
✓ Warm overalls, gloves, goggles and all necessary safety equipment.

Additional Information

The tour has an age limit of 10 years & height limit of 145 CM. We recommend all guests dress warmly in multiple layers and good footwear as it is always colder on the water. Don’t forget your camera!

Please note
Since this is a wildlife tour we can never predict or guarantee sightings of any kind. In the event that we don't encounter any puffins, we do not offer refunds, but instead, give our passengers a complimentary ticket to use another day. Weather is a big factor for the tour, and we may have to cancel the tour.
