Puffin tour Iceland: Húsavík Whale Watching and Puffins

How could the Húsavík Original Whale Watching tour possibly get better? Of course by sailing around Puffin Island, the home of thousands of puffins.

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!

We start the tour by sailing to Puffin Island, located only a short distance out of Husavik. There we will spend some time with the Puffins while sailing around this beautiful and lively Island. Next, we will head out to the whale watching area and spend the rest of the tour with the whales. On the way back our crew will give you some hot chocolate and cinnamon buns to round up the tour.

Whales and Puffin Tour Iceland: The perfect combination. A whale watching excursion with a stop by the peaceful Puffin Island. An ideal choice for families.

Did you know that the Puffin Island is the home of 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. It is also an interesting fact that 60% of the world’s puffins breed in Iceland, so you are in the right place for seeing these funny little birds.
