Departure from Old Harbor in Reykjavik

Leaving from the Old Harbour in Reykjavík, this is the ultimate puffin adventure tour. We arrive before other operators so we can enjoy an uninterrupted visit to the puffins and seabirds of the Faxaflói Bay.

The summer is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands just outside Reykjavík city. Puffins, Auks, Gannets and an incredible variety of other sea birds dominate the skies and sea cliffs just a few minutes sailing from the Old Harbour.

But that is not all, this tour is operated in our custom made RIB boats. They are specially designed to get you as close as possible to the islands and when possible we can switch the engines completely off to give the birds (and you) some peace and quiet to enjoy nature. During the tour your guide and captain will tell you interesting facts and tales about the Puffins and our surroundings.

Our RIBs are also the fastest boats in the harbour, meaning that on a short tour you will spend the majority of you time with the birds!
