Reykjavik: 1-Hour Puffin Watching Tour

1. Reykjavik: 1-Hour Puffin Watching Tour

The charismatic puffin has attracted local and tourist attention around Iceland for many years. It is their prismatic appearance and curious behavior that gives rise to this intrigue. Their most obvious characteristic during the breeding season is their brightly colored bill which, added to their striking piebald plumage, has given rise to nicknames such as “clown of the ocean” or “sea parrot.” Depending on tides and weather conditions, you will head to Akurey, Engey or Lundey on a 1.5-hour cruise. These islands are well known for their plentiful birdlife, and in addition to puffins you will have the opportunity to view other birds, such as eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots, cormorants, fulmars, geese and oystercatchers. The islands' shores are rocky, but the captains know the best spots to get close to the puffins in their natural habitat. If the weather is right he might even turn off the engines so that you can listen to the birds' calls. Luckily the puffins usually stay put for a while, so they are easy to photograph. Although you get close to the islands, the puffins are comparatively small birds and the free use of binoculars on board comes in handy. You can also borrow a rain jacket to keep your dry, and sip authentic seaman's coffee to keep warm.

What people are saying about Capital Region of Iceland

It is a nice activity if you only have few hours to spend Keep in mind that puffins are very small and you can only see them with binoculars My photos with an iPhone 12 didn’t come out that great

Very good organization. We were able to rebook the Northern Lights excursion as we hadn't seen them the 1st time. Regarding the blue lagoon, 2 hours on site is very sufficient.

Perfect weather and thousands of puffins in the air, on the water and on land.

good guide who could tell a lot about these beautiful birds

It was just perfect to see tons and tons of puffins.
