What to expect in this tour
Puffin and Volcano Tour is one of our most popular tour for those who are here on a day trip in Westman Islands
We drive around the Island in our minibus and tell you all about the history of the Westman Islands,
We take you to “sprangan”, a local sport in Heimaey, where our local guide will show you his amazing skills. Spranga is like scaling and swinging on a rope in the cliffs.

We will also drive in the middle of Eldfell the volcano where the eruption started.
