Elding Puffin Watching


The puffin watching tour commences at our ticket office by Ægisgarður pier in the Old Harbour in downtown Reykjavík. There you can buy tickets or exchange a voucher for a prepaid trip.

The tour is a fun and easy adventure on a boat. A guide will meet you on board one of our smaller boats (either Skrúður or Elding II), which are docked at the floating pier in front of the Whale Watching Centre.  Depending on the tides and conditions on the islands our captains will take you to either Akurey or Lundey. The islands are well known for their plentiful birdlife and in addition to puffins you have the opportunity to view other birds such as eider ducks, arctic terns, guillemots and cormorants.


The island's shores are rocky but our captains know the best spots to get closer to the puffins in their natural habitat. If the weather is right we might even turn off the engines so that you can enjoy the nature better and listen to the bird's calls. During the tour the crew will tell you interesting facts and tales about the puffins and the surroundings.
