Arctic Birds NSE-8
From the sea and from the shore - A true adventure for bird enthusiasts.
This is a 3 day tour from Húsavík with 2 nights on board, specially adapted to the interests of bird watchers. With ample time, a relaxed schedule and an expert bird guide we explore the birdlife in Skjálfandi bay, visit islands Lundey and Flatey (Puffin Island and Flat Island). Head north to Grímsey Island where we tie up in time for dinner at a local restaurant and settle in at our guesthouse for the next two nights.
A full day to explore this island on the Arctic Circle with its numerous bird cliffs and 3.500.000 birds of at least 40 species. Excursions to visit the bird areas on land as well as from the sea with our boat, taking the zodiac, depending on conditions. Walk to the Arctic Circle where we cross on a symbolic bridge to the Arctic at 66°33.
After two nights in Grímsey we set off for the journey back to Húsavík, in time to be able to enjoy the birdlife, whales and other wildlife on the way.
