Enjoy a boat tour in Breidafjordur Bay, taste the Viking Sushi and learn about sea and bird-life. Then touch and taste shellfish and more after a plough is raised from the ocean.

Sail from the harbour in Stykkisholmur for 1 hour and 20 min to various rocky islands in Breidafjordur Bay, right above Snaefellsnes Peninsula. Get as close as possible to the cliffs and admire the local bird-life as well as natural rock formations.

During the tour a shellfish plough is lowered into the ocean and a wonderful selection of shellfish and sea life is caught for viewing and tasting: scallops, sea urchins, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers, and much more. Some of these are possible to eat fresh from the sea, such as scallops and sea urchins.

It doesn’t get any fresher than this. After taking a look or tasting the catch, the trip continues, sailing around the islands to look for white-tailed eagles and other seabirds before returning to the harbour.

At the end of the trip, all children receive a colouring book of pictures of the shellfish and sea life they saw on their trip.
