Laxnes & Puffins

Mosfellsdalur, Iceland

Mosfellsdalur, Iceland

This tour is a combination of family-friendly activities keeping it stress-free and fun.

Your day starts at the old harbor in Reykjavik and it only takes us about 15 minutes to reach the Puffin island, Akurey where the guide will share information about the buildings & islands that can be spotted on the way.

The islands we visit are covered with small hills and slopes and both are well known for their colorful birdlife. The island‘s shores are rocky but our boat Old Skuli is specially designed to take us as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow draft. When we arrive at the islands we turn off the engine so our passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings while our expert guide tells you all the facts and fun stories about the cute Puffins and other wildlife in the area.

This tour is operated in cooperation with Special Tours.
