Puffins are cute, interesting and in Reykjavík! From the 1st of May until the 20th of August we offer this ultimate puffin adventure tour. Up to 9 daily departures from the Old Harbour in Reykjavík getting up close & personal with the puffins!
Leaving from the Old Harbour in Reykjavík, this is the ultimate puffin adventure tour operated on our RIB speedboats.
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. Each boat can only seat 12 passengers so this is a personal tour where you travel with a small group.
The boats 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 the surroundings.
On this up close & personal tour each boat only seats 12 passengers so you have plenty of time to ask your guide any question you have about the charismatic puffins and the other Icelandic sea birds.
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.
Dress warmly for our northern ocean, so if you have it, bring warm outdoor clothing like a wool or fleece sweater, some warm headgear and gloves. Sturdy shoes are recommended. And of course bring your camera!
