The Puffin Watching tours, Puffin Express, have been popular for over a  decade!
The Puffin Express adventure starts at the Old Harbour of Reykjavík and they only take one hour. It is an inexpensive and charming option for everyone.

The Puffin watching adventure is conducted from an old and charming wooden boat called Skúlaskeið or “Old Skuli“, taking up to 33 passengers each time. 
Lundey and Akurey are two small islands located in the Reykjavík bay area, only 15 minutes away from Reykjavík‘s Old harbour, from where we depart. 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 us as close to the islands as possible due to its shallow draught. 

When you arrive to the islands we turn off the engine so our passengers can observe the birds and the beautiful surroundings. 
The licensed guide tells all about the Puffins and other birds of interest that are often seen on the Puffin watching tours. Other birds spotted include Northern Fulmars, Gulls, Arctic Terns, and Black Guillemots. Our Puffin Watching Tours are very cozy and comfortable, and they only take one hour, which is convenient for Iceland‘s tourists’  precious time.

Important:

Departure is from Reykjavik´s Old Harbour and the departure time is indicated on your voucher/confirmation. Please arrive at least 20 minutes prior to departure for check in and boarding (recommended time is 30 minutes to be safe).

  • Binoculars are provided on board
