Join us on this land and sea tour combination of bird and whale watching with a local guide, where we will focus on the bay of Skjálfandaflói as well as the community of Húsavík and adjacent rural areas.

What to expect?

  • This program includes a sightseeing tour by boat to the island of Flatey. The town of Húsavík offers nature lovers a convenient starting point for a variety of activities and attractive locations e.g. for bird and whale watching.

  • We begin the tour at 8:00 am by exploring the harbor and surroundings, as well as the lower regions of the nearby Laxá River and selected ponds and lakes, such as Kaldbakstjarnir, an area frequented by bird species such as the Great Northern Diver. We then take a few hours break that allows you to enjoy what Húsavík has to offer.

  • We meet again at 5:00 pm for the second part of the program, which features a boat tour in the bay of Skjálfandi, including a visit to Flatey Island, renowned for its rich variety of bird species. Thus, it is normally the home to more than 30 different bird species during the nesting season. Species such as the Arctic Tern and Puffin are there in vast numbers. They can often be observed at close quarters. Hence, this is a unique opportunity to experience the marvels of nature. On this tour, we might even be treated to the delight of whale watching. In Flatey we enjoy a light dinner before getting back to land at 9:00 pm or a bit later.
