Special Tours was founded in 1996 as a Puffin Watching & School Trip Sea Tour Operator. We are very proud to be the first company in our marketplace to offer these unique tours from Reykjavik & for being able to have expanded into offering all the other sea adventures we offer today.
Your whale watching adventure begins at the old harbour, just minutes away from the city centre!
Hunting the northern lights from the ocean is an amazing experience; sailing away from the coastline of Reykjavik and seeing the aurora borealis out on the North-Atlantic ocean with beautiful mountains and the city in the background is something you won’t forget!
The Puffin Watching tours with Special Tours, Puffin Express, have been popular for over 20 years! Our great experience, and especially designed boat, Skúlaskeið or “Old Skuli”, makes us the leading expert in the area.
Here is our collection of combo tours where you can combine the best of our own tours with some of the most popular experiences by our partners in Iceland.
Here are a few great restaurants near the harbor we recommend checking out after your tour with us
