Explore Westman Islands

Departing from Reykjavik domestic airport (entrance beside Hotel Reykjavik Natura), we take a 20-minute flight to Westman Islands.

After landing in Heimaey you'll be transported to town where you have free time to explore or take part in the optional boat tour. At 13:30 you'll be taken on a 2 hour guided coach tour of the island, where you will witness 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 bird and animal life, including the world's largest puffin colony.

After exploring the island for almost a day you will enjoy another short flight back to Reykjavík in the afternoon.

Optional boat tour around the island

The boat circles the island of Heimaey, stopping at places of interest where passengers can see various caves, witness the bird life, and even spot whales or dolphins with a bit of luck.

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 trip takes approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes and is available only in summer.
