Vestmannaeyjar Boat Tour
On this approx. 1,5 hour sailing trip we will sail around Heimaey in Vestmanneyjar (e. Westman Islands) and we will see the island from sea which is spectacular. During the sailing a guide will tell you about the history of the islands, sagas, the geological history, the volcanic eruption on the island in 1973 as well as in inform you about Surtsey the youngest island in the world which is a part of the archipelago.
