Product Description

Puffin Watching Iceland

This Puffin watching tour allows you to get up close to the natural habitat of the Puffin. Aboard the specially designed boat called Old Skuli (or Skúlaskeið for those who want to practice their Icelandic!), you’ll be cruising towards some small hills and slopes, known for their colorful birdlife. Don’t worry about the rocky shores, because the Old Skuli is designed to take you as close as possible.

“Great Tour – Beyond Cool!!!”

travelertrio71 Saint Paul, Minnesota

The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the boat takes your right up to the island where they nest. The puffins were nesting when we took the tour and we were able to see tons of puffins. Got some great pictures. It was the highlight of our day in Reykjavik!!!

“Worth the trip”


We booked online and loved every moment. You get close to the puffins to photograph them but not too close to feel like you're interacting with them. The guides were really knowledgable. It was a one hour tour and worth it. The puffins are adorable!

“Good way to spend an hour without feeling sea sick”

ChilternRugby, Bucks

Well organised. Excellent commentary by an enthusiastic member of the crew.

Captain clever enough to keep turning the boat so that those pushed aside by rude passengers got a good view as well!! Cannot think of any reason not to recommend this short but enjoyable trip. By not going out to open water,the sea is smooth so i cannot. Imagine anyone would feel sick.
