Tour description

Sailing around Breiðafjörður’s countless islands, experience this shorter version of the ever-popular Viking Sushi tour. Get to see a glimpse of the fjord’s fairytale-like scenery: colorful rock faces, areas of historical interest, and the strongest ocean currents on Iceland’s coasts.

During the summer, this area is teeming with birdlife: shags, puffins, black-legged kittiwakes, arctic terns, fulmars, and eider ducks. You might even spot the king of Icelandic birds, the white-tailed eagle.

Breiðafjörður Bay is a paradise for bird enthusiasts, with countless seabirds nesting on the cliffs and skerries. From graceful Arctic terns to majestic sea eagles, the sky is alive with the sights and sounds of avian life, offering endless opportunities for observation and photography.

One of the tour’s highlights is the towing of a dredge along the ocean floor, scooping up various shellfish like scallops, sea urchins, crabs, and starfish. Some of these can be enjoyed fresh, including the scallops and sea urchins.

Get ready for a unique adventure that combines stunning landscapes, rich wildlife, and a taste of Iceland’s underwater bounty!
