This remote part of Iceland lies well off the beaten track, taking you through fascinating sea caves, huge monoliths and an untouched coastal wonderland known as the Westman Islands. There is no more exciting way to explore all the small islands of Westman Islands or Vestmannaeyjar.
The tour departs from the harbor at Heimaey, which is the only inhabited place on the islands, there you will meet your local friendly guide, be provided with a floatation suit and a life jacket and be given a quick safety briefing in preparation for our one-and-a-half-hour journey of exploration.
It will take you through a multitude of incredible places that few others have had the chance to see, as you bounce across the deep blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean in our specially designed boat. There is a total of five magical coastal caves, that we will enter and see all the subterranean wonders that they hide in their depths. The most famous is known as Klettshellir that regularly hosts concerts and is well-known for its amazing acoustics.
One of the highlights of the tour is the uniquely carved rock face that lies on the side of one of the islands and looks exactly like a huge elephant drinking from the ocean. This one-of-a-kind rock formation is incredibly photogenic and requires absolutely no imagination!
Location: We will meet you at the harbor in Heimaey, Westman Islands. See map below for more details.
