Full description

Start the trip from a beautiful harbor in the city center and sail out to Kollafjöður, where you can see the island in the bay. Videy Island is known for the Lennon/One Peace tower, Richard Scerra's 'Milestones', and other attractions, along with great bird life.

Continue on to Faxaflói Bay, popular for whale and bird watching, sea angling, and also great fishing grounds. The mountain ring seen from the bay, among which Snaefellsjökull Glacier may be spotted on clear days, is particularly beautiful.

Those who are not seaworthy should keep their hands off this speed tour. Despite our suits, my husband and I were wet down to our underwear. Of course, the sea gave us an incredible amount in return. The only thing we didn't see was whales, but that's just nature.
