Express Puffin Tour
The express tour is operated in our RIB speedboats. They are specially designed to get you as close as possible to the birdlife on the islands. When possible, we can switch off the engines completely to give the birds (and you) even more peace and quiet to enjoy the nature.
On this personal tour, up to 12 passengers will hear their guide and captain will telling interesting facts and tales about the puffins and all of their neighbors. Expect to see Arctic Terns (flying the longest migration of any bird) guillemots, razorbills, skuas and many other types of sea birds that call the Faxaflói Bay their home.
The summer is the best time to experience the birds and wildlife of the bay and islands just outside Reykjavík City and from the 1st of May - 20th of August we offer up to 9 daily departures! The puffins can be seen frantically flying around the islands, proudly standing in the entrance to their burrows and comically walking on land with their large feet.
Our RIBs are the fastest boats in Reykjavík harbour and the islands are only a few minutes sailing from our location. Therefore with a less time sailing out you will spend the majority of the trip in the presence of these charismatic little birds.
