Unique Westman Islands - Extension

Extend your visit by adding this package on to an existing Iceland Travel package or book as an individual package! 

Discover the splendid beauty and historic landmarks of the Westman Islands, situated just off the south coast of Iceland. Though the flight is just twenty minutes from Reykjavik, the landscape and atmosphere feels like a totally different world.   Although the islands are best known for being the home to the largest puffin colonies in the world and the 1973 volcanic eruption which led to the evacuation of the island, it is the local culture and resilience of the people that will leave the best impressions. 

It’s easy to explore Westman Island from sea, with numerous boat tours on offer. You can see bird species such as guillemots, gannets, kittiwakes, razorbills and puffins. 


No domestic flights on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day,  New Year's Day and Easter Sunday. 

For all packages except Reykjavík - New Year's Celebration a supplement will be charged for the travel period 28.Dec 2017 - 2.Jan 2018. 


  • 2 nights at selected hotel in the Westman Islands, including breakfast
  • Return flight Reykjavik- Westman Islands (excluding airport tax)

Day 1: Flight to Westman Islands

On your own, transfer to the Eagle Air terminal at Reykjavik airport for your flight to the Westman Islands (terminal is located behind the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura).  After a 20 minute flight, you are in the Westman Islands!  We suggest booking an add-on transfer (or tour) that will meet you at the airport and drop you off at your hotel afterwards. Suggestions are below.

Overnight stay in Westman Islands for the next 2 nights.

There is a lot to discover on the island. Take a walk in the town centre and visit any of its great museums or take a dip in the local saltwater swimming pool. The Eldheimar Museum is a top quality interactive museum that should not be missed. The islanders also have a great – and challenging-- golf course.  In the evening, enjoy dining at one of the charming, cosy restaurants.



Day 2: Day at your leisure in the Westman Islands – Optional Tours available

There are many opportunities for activities in the Westman Islands, both from sea and land.  With an exciting sea tour on a Rib boat or a more leisurely sail with a bigger boat from Heimaey, you'll witness towering bird cliffs famous for their puffin colonies, sail into sea caves and if you are lucky, you might spot some seals and whales during your trip!

Heimaey - Circle Boat Tour
