The Private Tour in Westman Islands is a privately guided tour in a small van/car that will take you around the whole Westman islands with a local guide. We start the tour by picking you up, on your request and then we will head on to sprangan, where your guide will show you his amazing local skills. Spranga is like swinging in a rope from the cliff. You will get to explore the whole island and witness for example Icelandic sheeps, horses and puffins.

We will drive in the middle of the volcano Eldfell, where the eruption started and you will get to hear the whole story of the eruption 1973 and your guide will tell you his personal story of how the eruption affected his family back then.

This private tour is an excellent for those who want to experience Westman islands in the best available comfort.

  • awesome!

    This was a really informative and fun tour- possibly the best tour I had in Iceland. The tour guide was born and raised on the Westman Islands so he had a really interesting perspective to offer.
