What to expect

In this authentic wildlife adventure, whale watching and puffin watching are combined. In addition to seeing whales in their natural habitat, you get to see the funny little puffins nesting, flying around and diving for food.

The tour starts with a sail to Puffin Island which is located only a short distance out of Husavik. You will spend some time with the Puffins while sailing around this beautiful and lively Island. You will then head out to the whale watching area and spend the rest of the tour with the whales. On the way back the crew will give you some hot chocolate and cinnamon buns to round up the tour.

Did you know that Puffin Island is home to over 200.000 puffins that spend the summer there nesting? The puffins arrive in the middle of April every year and leave at the end of August. Another interesting fact is that 60% of the world’s puffins breed in Iceland, so you are in the right place for seeing these funny little birds.
