Heimaey harbour westman islands

Arriving after your flight from Reykjavík on the volcanic island of Heimaey, (home to 4,500 people and, in summer, around 8 million puffins), in the Westman archipelago off the south coast of Iceland, you will discover that nature has sculpted a fascinating landscape teeming with diverse bird and animal life.  On a two-hour guided coach tour you will encounter a volcanic crater, still-warm lava and half-buried houses from the island’s 1973 volcanic eruption.  An optional boat tour (approx 90 minutes) takes you around the island, stopping to look at the birdlife and – with luck – whales, and ends by sailing into Klettshellir (Cliff Cave) where a musical instrument is played to showcase the stunning acoustics.   If you choose not to take the boat tour, you will have free time to explore the island on your own.

Included:

  • Return flight to the Westman Islands (25 minutes each way)
  • Guided coach tour

Not included:

  • Optional boat tour
  • Lunch or other refreshments
