Overview

Because they tend to nest on rocky cliffs close to water, seeing puffins in their natural habitat is sometimes tricky. Increase your chances on this tour from Reykjavik that takes you out on a boat to to either Akurey or Lundey, two islands that are well known for their plentiful birdlife. In addition to puffins you have the opportunity to view eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots, and cormorants.
  • Get as close as responsibly possible to the puffins' nesting areas
  • Learn about birdlife from your guides
  • Borrow binoculars to see the birds up close: No need to bring your own
