Why take this tour?
Visit Iceland’s famous puffin colony on a boat that is specifically designed to bring you as close as possible to the rocky island. While many cruises only let you see the birds from a distance, this vantage point enables you to watch the seabirds up close in their natural environment. Plus, this express trip is only an hour-long, making it easy to fit into a busy vacation schedule.
