All about the trip
We sail out from the old harbor in Reykjavik and it only takes us about 15 minutes to reach the puffin island, Akurey. On the journey out you will be able to view Reykjavik from the seaside and the guide will also share information about the buildings and islands that can be spotted along the way.
The islands we visit are covered with small hills and slopes and both are well known for their colorful birdlife. The island’s shores are rocky but our boat Old Skuli is specially designed to take us as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow draft. When we arrive at the islands we turn off the engine so our passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings.
Our expert guide will tell you all the facts and fun stories about the cute puffins and other wildlife that might be seen on the tour.Watch on Youtube
