This tour takes you from Reykjavík to the volcano island of Heimaey in the Westman Islands archipelago.
In Heimaey you’ll be taken on a guided coach tour of the island, where you will get in touch with a volcanic crater, still-warm
lava and half-buried houses from the island’s infamous 1973 volcanic eruption. You will spot some of the most interesting features of the island, where nature has sculpted a fascinating landscape teeming with diverse birdlife and animal life, including the world´s largest puffin colony.
Optional boat tour around the island
The boat circles the island of Heimaey, stopping briefly at places of interest where passengers can see various caves, witness
the birdlife, and are likely to see some whales. The trip ends by sailing into Klettshellir (Cliff Cave). A musical instrument is
played to showcase the cave’s stunning acoustics, creating a sensational experience. From there we re-enter the harbour.
The boat tour (optional) is only available during summer* and takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes
* If you choose not to go on the boat tour or it’s out of season, you will have some free time to explore the island. Your guide will tell you
about interesting areas to visit and meet up with you afterwards.
