Puffin and Volcano Tour

Our Puffin and Volcano Tour is the most popular tour in Westman Islands. We will drive you around the island and tell you about our history and locals. Visit unique natural places and visit some puffins. In this tour we will go to Stórhöfði (the windiest place in Europe) to see our amazing puffin colony. We will go to Herjólfdalur and see the famous elephant rock, drive in the middle of the volcano where the eruption started. At the end of the trip, you’ll meet one of our most famous Puffin in the world.

Our tour includes a visit with the Puffin Whisperer to the Puffin Sanctuary where you will meet and greet a live puffin. This is an exclusive visit and only available with Eyjatours.

This Puffin and Volcano minibus tour is not a typical bus tour were you are sitting the entire time on the bus, we are getting in and out of the bus and exploring each stop. It is more like a mystery tour 😉

We are committed to provide excellent, local and personal service and we use only minibus in our tours.

  • 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.

The Wonders of Westman Islands

Experience the Westman Island on a friendly and personal way with your local guide that will take you around the whole island.

You will get to explore the whole island and witness for example Icelandic sheeps, horses and puffins


Don´t squeeze into a bus with all the others when you can get a private tour around the island with a local guide.

We will explore the island together in a small van/car and visit all the best spots on Heimaey. This tour is customized after your interest and your needs.
