Explore incredible Iceland’s wildlife with this puffin and whale-watching tour!
This unique wildlife tour combines two of the best things in Iceland - whale watching and puffin watching! During whale watching, it is very likely to see some humpback whales and minke whales. During the puffin watching, you'll encounter more birds than you can count!
The tour starts with sailing to Puffin Island, situated a short distance from the Húsavík. Puffin Island is full of life during the summer months, with over 100,000 staying on the island. Watching these lovely little birds flying, nesting, and diving for food is truly entertaining! Kids especially like their clumsy way of flying. Kids are not the only ones fascinated by these little birds. Many wooden boats go around the island, admiring the diverse and exciting birdlife. The onboard crew will provide extensive details on the birdlife in Iceland.
The puffin season is from the middle of April till around the end of August. 60% of the global puffin population live and nest here in Iceland, so you'll get an excellent chance to see them!
Next, we'll head out to the sea to see some whales! Whales are another unique species that can be found around Iceland. During this whale-watching tour, we'll try to get as close as possible to these magnificent creatures. Seeing them with your own eyes is truly an indescribable experience!
On the way back to Húsavík, our incredible crew will serve you hot chocolate and cinnamon buns.
