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.
Húsavík is about an hour from Akureyri, so if you don´t have a car, you can take public bus no. 79 (for schedules and prices, check out www.straeto.is).

- 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.
