See the puffin in its natural habitat

On this tour we sail out to Kollafjörður fjord on a charming old oak boat, "Skúlaskeið" (Old Skúli) which is especially designed to sail as close as possible to the islands due to the boat's shallow draught.

The islands, Akurey and Lundey, are both well-known colonies for puffins and other seabirds such as northern fulmars, seagulls, arctic terns and black guillemots, only to name a few.

Puffins return to the same site to breed and nest year after year. While sailing, the guide will provide some interesting information about history and biology of birdlife. When approaching the islands the engine is turned off so passengers can observe the birds in their natural habitat and enjoy this unique sight.
