This tour is perfect for birdwatchers and nature lovers. A charming little boat takes you sailing to an island renowned for its large colony of Atlantic puffins during the summer. This tour takes you out to Melrakkaey Island where we’ll see hundreds of nesting Atlantic puffins. The island is protected and has become a haven for a myriad of seabirds. Sail close to the island’s cliffs for a golden opportunity to see these little birds up close as they line up on the edge of the cliffs. Continue to circle around the small island to view other seabirds such as guillemots, shags, kittiwakes and other species. As you return you will get to enjoy the view of the majestic and peculiarly shaped Mt. Kirkjufell. The mountain and the impressive Helgrindur mountain range provide a stunning backdrop to the quaint little town of Grundarfjordur.
