Hundreds of puffins flying around Melrakkaey Island's basalt columns is a sight to remember. Going by a traditional oak boat, we will get as close to the cliffs as possible to spot these lovely little birds in their multi-colored feathers.

During this tour, we will sail around Melrakkaey Island to catch a glimpse of puffins and other birds that nest here, like cormorants, shags, kittiwakes, guillemots, and many others. This one-hour tour on Láki will give you the best opportunity to see these incredible creatures in their natural habitat.

On our way back, we'll soak in the picturesque scenery of the fjord and Mt Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland. This tour is perfect for families and photography lovers.
