What to expect in this tour
Puffin and Volcano Tour is one of our most popular tour for those who are here on a day trip in Westman Islands
We drive around the Island in our minibus and tell you all about the history of the Westman Islands. This is not your typical minibus tour where you just sit inside the whole time you will be getting in and out of the bus to explore each stop with our local guide.
We take you to “sprangan”, a local sport in Heimaey, where our local guide will show you his amazing skills. Spranga is like scaling and swinging on a rope in the cliffs.
In this tour, we will go to valley Herjolfsdalur and also go to Stórhofdi (the windiest place in Europe) to see our amazing puffin colony. We will also drive in the middle of Eldfell the volcano where the eruption started.
