Operator: Special Tours
We say: Puffins! We sure love these little guys. They usually live out on the ocean, covering many thousands of kilometres on their travels. It’s pretty hard to hatch eggs on sea though so when it’s time to lay eggs they come back to land and live in burrows, a specially dug 2 room hole in the ground. This trip takes just one hour and goes out to a small island in the bay where the puffins feel safe from predators (usually they nest on high cliffs). The boat used is a small one which has a shallow enough keel to pull up close enough to the island for you to see the birds. 100% viewing success on this boat tour!
Ideal for you if: you would love to see puffins but aren’t going to visit one of their other nesting sites outside Reykjavík, or if you just want a short 1 hr trip to complement your day in Reykjavík.
- Binoculars are provided on board
- Specially designed boat to get as close to the islands as possible 20 years of experience
- Experienced guide & friendly crew on every tour
