Know More about this tour

Puffin Express Cruise to Akurey from Reykjavik (1 Hour)
Select your choice of departure time, then after hotel pickup, board a comfortable boat for your cruise to Akurey, an island off the coast of Reykjavik that is known for its puffin population.

On board, snuggle up in one of the provided blankets and listen as your guide shares fascinating facts about the puffins that nest on the island between May and August. As you draw closer, peer through a pair of the boats binoculars for a closer look at these seabirds as they dive into the sea for food. You may also spot northern fulmars, gulls, Arctic terns and black guillemots.

After 15 minutes, arrive at the rocky shores of Akurey. Circle around the island for more observation time, then let the peace and quiet wash over you when the captain turns the engines off.

Your tour then concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Whale-Watching Tour from Reykjavik (2.5 or 3.5 Hours)
Choose from a leisurely 3.5-hour cruise or an express 2.5-hour high-speed boat version, then begin with a hotel pickup. Hop inside a comfortable transfer vehicle and travel to Reykjaviks Old Harbor, where youll board your luxurious, whale-watching boat.

Find yourself a spot on deck and pull on a pair of provided overalls to shield you from the cold, then listen as your guide explains what species of marine life you can expect to see during your cruise.

As your boat breaks away from land, look out for harbor porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales. With 90% whale-spotting success, this Faxafli Bay cruise provides a fantastic chance to see whales. In the unlikely event that you dont spot a whale, you will receive a complimentary ticket for another boat ride.

If you feel cold during your cruise, make for the cozy inside viewing area, where you can defrost with hot chocolate, coffee, tea and snacks (own expense). After 2.5 or 3.5 hours, your experience ends with a drop-off back at your hotel.
