Board a boat for an unforgettable journey: birds, fresh samples of shellfish, Breidafjordur’s innumerable islands, and a taste of history.
Sailing around Breidafjordur ‘s innumerable islands, the ever-popular Viking Sushi Adventure Voyage offers a glimpse of the fjord’s fairytale-like scenery: variegated rock faces, areas of historical interest, along with the strongest ocean currents anywhere on Iceland’s coasts.
During the summer, the area abounds with birdlife: shags, puffins, black-legged kittiwakes, arctic terns, fulmars and eider ducks. Even the king of Icelandic birds, the white-tailed eagle, sometimes makes an appearance.
During the tour, the crew lowers a shellfish plough into the ocean to catch a wonderful selection of shellfish and sea life: scallops, sea urchins, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers, and much more. Some of these are even possible to eat fresh from the sea as “Viking sushi”, such as scallops and sea urchins.
It doesn’t get any fresher than this. After taking a look at or tasting the catch, the trip continues, sailing around the islands to look for white-tailed eagles and other seabirds before returning to the harbor.
