After meeting your guide, board the comfortable puffin express boat for a 15-minute cruise to Akurey, an island known for its puffin population, just off the coast of Reykjavik.
Puffins nest between May and August on this island, which is covered with small hills and slopes and known for its colorful bird life. As the island's shores are rocky, your puffin-watching boat is specially designed to get you as close to the shoreline as possible, so you can get an up-close look at these adorable creatures!
On board, learn from your expert guide about the puffins as well as other interesting seabirds that you may spot on the tour, such as northern fulmars, gulls, arctic terns and black guillemots. Enjoy watching the seabirds flying and diving into the water.
When you arrive at the Akurey shore, circle around the island for more observation time before the captain turns the engines off, allowing you to enjoy the peace and quiet among Iceland’s natural treasures.
You have the choice of five departure times throughout the day (up to seven departures from June-August) to suit your Iceland itinerary.
