Whales, Puffins and Sails

Try something very different and experience wildlife on board a traditional Icelandic sailing ship.

A unique sailing tour combining whale watching, puffin watching and a sailing adventure on board one of our traditional oak sailing ships; Hildur or Haukur. On board you experience the aura of past times in Icelandic coastal culture by setting sails or even assisting the skipper. The sailing ship takes you to Lundey, the Puffin Island, as well as the traditional whale watching areas.
