Itinerary

The Puffin watching adventure is conducted from a charming, specially-designed wooden boat named Old Skuli, taking up to 33 passengers each time. Lundey and Akurey are two small islands teaming with birdlife located in the Reykjavik bay area, only 15 minutes away from Reykjavik‘s Old Harbor.

The islands are covered with small hills and slopes and both are well-known for their colorful birdlife. The island‘s shores are rocky but Old Skuli is especially designed to take you as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow draught. Arrive to the islands, the crew turns off the engine so her passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings. Your licensed guide tells you all about the Puffins and other birds of interest, including Northern Fulmars, Gulls, Arctic Terns, and Black Guillemots.
