Heimaey Circle Tour

We start our tour from the historic Heimaey harbor, which was almost lost during the volcanic eruption in 1973. The boat tour gives you a look at colorful ocean caves, the newly formed volcanic island of Surtsey and other islands of Westman Islands, and the lava coastline with its deep bird cliffs. You can observe variety of seabird and occasionally whales. Our trip ends by sailing into the Cliff Cave near the harbor, where you will hear the sound of an instrumental music and enjoy the unique acoustic in this cave. The tour ends in Heimaey harbor.
